What if the Lord came to You? Would you recognize Him? Luke 24:13-35

Good morning everyone,
I was just reading a very recognizable scripture from Luke 24:13-35 titled 'On the Road to Emmaus.'  If Jesus Christ were in your presence, would you recognize Him?  I think a lot of us would say that we feel we would recognize Him but even those closest to Him didn't until their eyes were opened.  How many times in your life do you believe that you have actually entertained angels?  Hebrews 13:2 says, 'Do not neglect to show hospitality to strangers, for thereby some have entertained angels unawares.'  When you have an opportunity to serve or be served, which option do you pick?  Matthew 20:28 says, 'even as the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give His life as a ransom for many.'  The perfect model for us is Jesus Christ, yet we spend much of our time being served instead of looking for an opportunity to serve.  Ask the Lord today to help you see and take actions when opportunities come about.  Don't get too busy to not see why you were made!  1 Peter 4:10 says, 'As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God's varied grace.'  Go forth in the precious name of Jesus and proclaim the example of His 'Gracious Love' and see what impact He wants you to make!  Be a reflection of who Jesus is so that others will realize that there is hope in Jesus Christ!
Your brother in Christ,
