We Had Hoped – April 29, 2019

Judges 9.22-10.18; Luke 24.13-53; Psalm 100.1-5; Proverbs 14.11-12

Have you ever had your hopes dashed? By “hopes,” I don’t mean things that may or may not have come to pass. I mean things that you put all your dreams into, everything you were about was focused on the possibility of this thing coming true. You absolutely knew it would happen. Only it didn’t. While the comments of the two men on the road to Emmaus were sad, perhaps even sadder was the fact that Jesus was indeed the Messiah, they just had to go through a time of doubting that it was true. When have you thought Jesus was not going to provide salvation for you?

Questions:

Describe a time when you have spouted off brags and boasts, only to have it come back to haunt you.

Why do you think it was through the breaking of the bread that Jesus’ followers finally recognized him?

What are ways we acknowledge that the Lord is God today?

Why would a seemingly right path lead to death?
