When We Are On The Road To Emmaus
December 29, 2019 • Won Lee
Two disciples were on the road to Emmaus after the death of Jesus, not realizing that Jesus had resurrected. They were discouraged, confused, and saddened. The reality is that we all are walking on the road to Emmaus. We will experience times of discouragement, confusion and sadness. We will look at what Jesus does for these two disciples (and us).
Who Am I?

God created humanity in his own image—there was nothing evil, missing, or deficient. Thus, Adam and Eve were complete and fully sufficient in their relationship with their Creator. But, after the Fall, humanity no longer found sufficiency in God’s love alone. Instead of living from God’s acceptance and love, we live for acceptance and love outside of God through appearance, achievement, status, etc. The consequence is a distorted self-image (identity) that results in pain and fear. But, the way to freedom from the pain and fear of a distorted self-image is to believe that you are who God say you are.
