The message and scripture is from the artist of this painting, Liz Lemon Swindle.
"Three days after the Savior´s death, two of His disciples walked the
dusty road from Jerusalem to Emmaus. As they spoke, they were joined by a
traveler who asked about their conversation. The disciples replied,
"Art thou only a stranger in Jerusalem...they have crucified [Jesus].
But we trusted that it had been he which should have redeemed Israel."
Then the stranger said, "Ought not Christ to have
suffered these things, and to enter into his glory?" He then opened the
scriptures to them, showing how all of the prophets had testified that
Christ would be crucified and rise on the third day. As night fell the
disciples asked the traveler to join them for a meal. Sitting together
the stranger, "...took bread, and blessed it, and brake it, and gave to
them. And their eyes were opened, and they knew...[it was Jesus]." -
We are often like the disciples. We let the worries of
the day keep us from recognizing that the Savior is walking alongside
us. We are quick to treat our trials as curses, instead of trusting that
with God´s perspective our "curses" may actually be blessings. May we
be more willing to wait upon the Lord, and may we see things as they
really are as we walk our own roads to Emmaus."
