What lens are you wearing?
Pastor Rob Myallis   -  

Easter III 2023 (April 23)

Why can’t see disciples see Jesus as they walk with him on the road to Emmaus?  (Luke 24)

Pastor Rob suggests that what lenses we wear in life powerfully impact why we can see.  (The glasses in this image are from the movie National Treasure; without them, one cannot see the treasure map on the Declaration of Independence). After witnessing the crucifixion of Jesus, the disciples are looking at life through a lens of violence, defeat and death; Jesus must renew their lenses of resurrection.

Likewise in our lives, Jesus also needs to renew the lenses of resurrection, that we can see his presence in worship but also on the road of life.
