Children’s Message: Blessings in Disguise
Jesus on the Road to Emmaus and God’s Work in our Lives
Main Objective: The main point of this message relates to current events in a timely way. Challenging things are happening in our world, and it’s difficult to understand why. We have to trust that God is at work, and that He has a plan in all things. The disciples on the road to Emmaus didn’t recognize Jesus at first, and when He explained things to them, all of the pieces fell into place. We don’t always recognize what Jesus is doing in our lives, but one day we will see Him face to face. Meanwhile, we can look for how He is working through those around us, and commit to daily prayer and Bible study.

Law/Gospel Theme: We sometimes develop a punishment/reward mentality that would have us assume good things happen to good people, and vice versa. We wonder why we struggle or suffer, and think perhaps we should strive to give ourselves better lives. While sin is responsible for pain in the world, we need to recognize that God is always in control. Because of the work of Jesus, we are promised salvation. Even though our current lives are still difficult and we don’t understand why, we can still trust that He is at work.
