“But they urged Him, saying,‘Stay with us, for it is getting toward evening, and the day is now nearly over.’ So He went in to stay with them” (Luke 24:29).
Because of their grief, confusion, disappointment, and despair these two disciples were on the brink of abandoning their faith. Things just didn’t make sense. Encountering Jesus, however, changes everything. Vision replaces darkness; hope, despair; and joy, grief. As disciples, because Jesus brings so much clarity and vividness to our existence, we crave his presence. He is the key to interpreting and understanding all of life.
