The final week of a six-week series Lost and Found. The journey for the disciples and for us is just beginning. It is why we are called “The People of the Way.” Because living the life Jesus wants us to live, the way he wants us to be in this world is indeed a journey. Jesus never promised that the way would be easy once you started following him and his teachings and fully engaged in his mission and ministry. On the contrary, the journey is painfully difficult. It is easier just to walk away from all of it like these two disciples. But these two disciples, after they broke bread with Jesus once again, became passionate about going back to Jerusalem, and to begin the journey of sharing with the world the love and grace of Jesus.
In this six-week series, we continue to explore how the promises of God are fulfilled in the birth, life, death and resurrection of Jesus through the lens of the Gospel of Luke. We look at some of the parables of Jesus as well as his death and resurrection. These stories are mixed with immense grief, loss, celebration and joy. We discover that the very character of the Triune God is about restoration and reconciliation of relationships. For what has been lost has been found.
