How To Find Jesus
It always makes me laugh when I hear about the disciples, the people who spent their whole life with Jesus in his public Ministry, not recognizing Jesus after the resurrection, they see Him, but they don’t realize it’s Him.
And I always think to myself, like, how funny is that? But then I think about my own life, and I think I sometimes miss out on the fact that Jesus is right in front of me. And I want to share a couple of ways that each of us can maybe see Jesus more clearly this week.
First, in the reading, we hear about the Disciples on the road to Amay us how they encounter Jesus.
And Jesus is with them, and he explains the Scriptures with them. But they still don’t see it’s Jesus until they stop, and Jesus pretends he’s going to go further. But they beg him to stay.
When they beg him today, they break bread together. And it’s in this celebration of the Eucharist that they realize it’s Jesus.
And so this Sunday invites you may be to just stop and to realize Jesus is right in front of you in the Eucharist, that the God of the universe wants you to receive him, want you to have you take Him in, that you might receive from them. You might know Him more deeply this Sunday through the Eucharist.
Secondly, after Jesus leaves, they talk about we’re not our hearts burning within us as he broke open the Scriptures. Now, I think sometimes we can kind of miss out on the fact that God’s word, that the Scriptures, that God can speak to us, that the Scriptures are alive.
They’re living and active, but they’re not living and active when they’re sitting on our bookshelf.
They’re alive and active when they’re read when they’re proclaimed. And one of my favourite quotes from Vatican two, there’s a book. There’s a letter called DA Verbum and a verb that talks about we should have the same reference for Jesus present in the Scriptures as we do for the body of the Lord.
And so that same reference we have for the Eucharist, we should recognize Jesus in the Word of God in the Scriptures proclaimed that we should reference Jesus. We should experience Jesus.
We should see Jesus speaking to us through Scriptures.
Lastly, I think Jesus is right in front of us. A lot of times, he’s present in the needs of our family, our friends, the strangers we meet. But oftentimes, I know if you’re anything like me, I get distracted. I’m too busy.
I don’t see the need in front of me. I don’t see Jesus asking me to do something. And I don’t see Jesus telling me to share God’s love with someone because I’m too busy.
I might be caught from my phone or caught from my work, but so often, I think Jesus is right in front of us through other people. And so my question for you this week is to think about what’s one way you are currently seeing Jesus in your life?
What’s one way you’ve experienced Jesus recently? And to share that in the comments below, God bless.

2. Admit you are a sinner
“All have sinned and are deprived of the glory of God.” (Romans 3:23)
“One man’s sin entered the world, and sin entered through death – that’s how death permeated all mankind because all sinned.” (Romans 5:12)
“If we believe that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word does not live in us.” (1 John 1:10)
3. You must be willing to turn away from sin; that is, you must repent
Jesus said: “I tell you not, in the same way, you will all die unless you repent.” (Luke 13:5)
“God used to ignore those times of ignorance, but now He commands everyone, everywhere, to repent.” (Acts 17:30)

“God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son so that whoever believes in him will not be lost but have eternal life.” (John 3:16)

“Go therefore make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.” (Matthew 28:19)
“Let’s not gather some of us together, as some of us do, but let us encourage one another and see more and more of the cause that that day is coming.” (Hebrews 10:25)
“All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful for teaching, correcting, correcting, and teaching in righteousness.” (2 Timothy 3:16)
What To Say To Jesus
Although we don’t know what Jesus will say, the Bible does give us some clues ( Matthew 25.23 ). It will be glorious and full of grace, whatever it may be. We will hear his voice. It will be incredible.
What if we asked the question in reverse? Instead of asking Jesus what he might say, how can we speak to Jesus? For a moment, imagine that Jesus is there with you and asks you how it went to heaven.
He asks, “How did you save yourself?”
It’s as simple as you think. “A person can’t be justified by the law, but only by faith in Jesus Christ.” I believe that you will be my justification through faith.” Galatians 2:6).
He says, “Yes.”
Imagine him asking a follow-up question. He wants to go deeper. He wants to share more of his glory with you. As John Piper imagines in chapter four of Five points: Towards a Deeper Experience God’s Grace, Jesus asks, “Why didn’t you believe on me when you heard the gospel but not your friends when they heard it?”
This is a fact, you know. Many people in our lives, whether they know it or not, have heard of the gospel but don’t believe it. Some will reject Jesus their whole lives, which is sad. There you are on that Day. Jesus asks you why, why were you one of those who believed.
“Why did I trust you, but these other people didn’t?”
He speaks. You bow your head. You don’t claim it’s because your brain is more advanced. Your wisdom doesn’t allow you to explain how your faith is formed. “Well, Lord. You see, I was just a little more spiritual than them.” “I read more books than they did.” “I have always had a way to make good decisions.”
No. That won’t happen.
Imagine it. At that moment, I, you, and every blood-bought saint will place our hands over our lips, pointing to God, not to us. Grace will shine brighter than we ever imagined. New colors, depths, and wonders will emerge that we can’t see in our dimming mirror.
Then, in that moment of glory, we will be able to say, “You Jesus.” It was all you. Only by your sovereign grace, we believe in your name. Jesus Christ, it was all you.
