We’ve all had those frustrating experiences in which something doesn’t make sense. It seems the more we try to figure things out, the more confusing they become. Then suddenly, something happens and it all makes sense. The confusion becomes crystal clear. We have what is called an “aha moment”.

When it comes to God things, a lot of people are confused. Just listen to all their questions. “God why did you let this happen? How can you be good when I’m feeling so bad? What in the world is your plan for my messed up life?” There were a couple of men who felt pretty much like that on the first Easter Sunday. They were walking and talking with each other, trying to figure out why Jesus had been crucified and what had happened to his body, which was not in the tomb where it was supposed to be.

In his famous incognito hike called “The Road to Emmaus”, Jesus explains to the men why the cross and empty tomb were absolutely essential to his work as the Messiah. It isn’t until they reach their destination that the light bulb goes on and these disciples understand. But the moment it did, their lives were changed forever.

How would you rate your understanding of what Jesus means in your life? Still in the dark? The clouds starting to pass? Or, are things clear as day? Regardless of where you are at, spending time with Jesus is undoubtedly the best way to clear up your doubts and answer your questions.
Join us for our online service. Together let’s walk and talk with Jesus.
