Confusion To Enlightenment

Charming, crazy eyes have you, are they gray o...Image by kms ! via Flickr

I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know him better. I pray also that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints, and his incomparably great power for us who believe. That power is like the working of his mighty strength...Ephesians 1:17-19

For so many of the characters in the Easter story, confusion reigned. The disciples had been so full of expectation only to end up disappointed and terrified for their lives. Two of them decided to go back to Emmaus. As far as they could see there was nothing left for them in Jerusalem. The story for them had come to an end and they had to pick up their lives again. Little did they know what was in store for them! A stranger met them and explained the Scriptures concerning Jesus Christ. However it was not until bread was broken that it was revealed to them that this was indeed Jesus himself. Suddenly that spirit of revelation was given to them and their confusion disappeared. This is what Paul prays for and indeed what we should be seeking, a revelation of this amazing hope and all those glorious riches we have been given. Jesus is risen and I believe He wants to meet us in our confusion and unbelief. He wants to open the Scriptures to us, walk with us, eat with us and to enlighten our hearts. Come Lord Jesus!

The sublime thing is that Jesus Christ is still with us, and will be always with us till the end of the world.
