Don’t quit till you get to the bread (Walk to Emmaus)

Let Jesus
Amaze Us
Like Emmaus!

Let’s read the Bible
To let the living Jesus
Continually amaze us.
The Emmaus walkers
With their knowledge
Were blind to the amazing presence
Of the living, resurrected Jesus.
The Emmaus Road is everywhere,
But Christians are too often unaware
That the risen Jesus
Is communicating with us.
His presence is so close
That He speaks within us.
We know about His Cross
And empty tomb
But they’re just stories
That we’ve heard
And read about in the Word.
Until we recognize
The risen Jesus
Along “Roman Road”
And in the rest of the Bible,
As did the walkers
On the Emmaus Road,
In the broken bread
Of the heartaches of life,
Our faith though knowledgeable
Will be dead.

About Steve Simms

I like to look and think outside the box. In college I encountered Jesus Christ and I have been passionate about trying to get to know Him better ever since. My wife and I long to see the power and passion of the first Christ-followers come to life in our time. I have written a book about our experiences in non-traditional church, called, "Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible--Ekklesia." If you need encouragement, search for: Elephants Encouraging The Room and/or check out my Amazon author page. Thank you!
