June 1: Left
Scripture Lesson: Luke 24:28-35
On this date in 2005, after the Astros finished the first two
months of the season with a 19-32 won-loss record, the Houston Chronicle printed an obituary for the team. The club, which
was 14 games out, made a run to the World Series after winning the National
League pennant as a wild card team.
After His resurrection, Jesus appeared to two people who were on
their way back to their hometown of Emmaus. Jesus noticed that they were sad
and asked why. The pair, who did not recognize Jesus, proceeded to tell Him
about the events of the last few days, including His death on a cross. As they
traveled along, Jesus began to teach them about the Scriptures concerning Him.
As they approached the village they travelers invited Jesus to stay with them.
At dinner, Jesus broke the bread, and they recognized Him just before He
disappeared from their sight. The two men ran back to Jerusalem and told the
disciples that it was true: Jesus had risen from the dead!
the biggest comeback you have been a part of in a game?
you think the two men felt when they recognized Jesus in their home?
should we tell others about what Jesus has done for us?
The Astros were left for dead in the 2005 pennant race, but look
what they did! Jesus died on a cross and was put in a tomb. The tomb is still
empty today. Look at what God has done for us!
