3rd Sunday of Easter April 26, 2020
Please open my eyes to see you. Please open my ears to hear from you. Please open my heart to receive you in my life.
Below is a video from Misha and me. Youtube doesn't let us comment there, but you can comment on our website! If you are unable to view the video, I have included the main points below. (About 10 minutes long).
This is the year 2020 A.D.
The A.D. stands for Anno Domini.
That's Latin for In The Year of Our Lord.
It has been around 2,020 years since Jesus was born. Our calendar has been keeping track of The Year of Our Lord Jesus Christ!
We are still celebrating Easter! Jesus is Alive! Allelujah!
Jesus was 33 years old when he died and rose again. We are close to 2,000 years since he died and rose again on that first Easter.
After he arose, he appeared to his disciples and hundreds of people. Luke 24:13-35 tells the story about how he appeared to disciples on the road to Emmaus.
How can we still see Jesus with us?
Two or three are gathered. There were two disciples walking together and remembering Jesus. They are talking about all that happened three days before, when he was crucified. When a stranger asks what they are discussing, they tell him about Jesus. When do Christians gather and remember Jesus?
The Word of God, reading the Bible. The stranger talks about the Scriptures. He reminds them of places in the Old Testament that say that the Messiah would suffer in order to enter into glory. When do we listen to what the Scriptures tell us about Jesus?
The two invited the stranger to stay and eat with them in the village. When they are eating, the stranger takes bread, blesses it, and gives it to them, and they recognize the stranger is Jesus. When do we bless, break, and share bread as Jesus taught us?
NEW WORD: Transubstantiation—the changing of the bread and wine into the Body and blood of Jesus Christ in the Sacrament of the Eucharist.
Sharing this song with you!
