"Hearts Strangely Warmed!" (1 Peter 1:17-23, Luke 24:13-35)

Part of the Sunday series, preached at a Sunday service

In the spiritual meaning the word Emmaus means “an earnest longing.” Emmaus was an ancient town located approximately 7 miles (11 km) northwest of present day Jerusalem. There are some walks that are longer than others -- not because of the miles or even because of the landscape, but because of the burdens. I suspect this was one of the latter type. It was a seven-mile walk, a walk you would notice in your ankles and calves. But the real path they were walking was vastly longer and more difficult -- it was the walk of hopes in shambles. It was the walk taken through the valley of disillusionment. It was a walk burdened with perhaps accusation or shame. It was the walk to Emmaus. I believe that the road to Emmaus is a road that must be walked, in one sense, by everyone who would become a better Christian. The road to Emmaus started out in disbelief and sadness. It ended in joy, excitement, love, and true devotion. The same can happen to each one of us.
