Without an adversary prowess shrivels. We see how great and efficient it really is only when it shows by endurance what it is capable of. • Seneca the Younger

I love this conversation that Jesus has with the two men on the road to Emmaus. There is so much to glean from it. I love that he taught them from the Old Testament (Moses and the Prophets), all the scriptures, the things concerning himself.
It is easy for sin to ensnare us. We are in a race, a race that must be run with endurance, always looking unto Jesus. We mustn’t be afraid of any chastisement from the Lord. In the end it is of great value.
We must be careful in venting our feelings. It is often wiser to hold them back.
It is important to keep justice, to do righteousness as the Lord is coming back. He could come at any moment. God desires that his house should be a house of prayer. I wonder how he feels about many churches today. I wonder how he feels about our church.
The mouth of the Lord has spoken, through the Bible!
Dear Lord, thank you for your word, it enriches our lives in so many ways. Help us to choose our words carefully especially in how we vent our feelings. Keep us on the path of righteousness through giving us a great sensitivity to the Holy Spirit this day and always. In Jesus name…amen.
