On the third day after Jesus’ crucifixion, a group of disciples walked together on the road to Emmaus. They were completely lost in the grief of losing their leader, their lives shat-tered because they had yet to see the promise of the resurrection fulfilled. Even before they realize it, Jesus walks alongside them, opens the Scriptures to them, and they see him in and through God’s Word.
When we find ourselves lost in grief, wandering aimlessly and unsure of where our steps will take up, God comes to us in His Word to guide us back to Him. Even at the deepest stages of grief, God is with us.
