Out on a Limb

The men on the road to Emmaus felt that they were further out on a limb and in fact even as they were out their in the grief they were being cut down.

In Luke 24:13-35, we find how Jesus walked alongside two men who were going from Jerusalem to a village about seven miles away.

Jesus asked to those two men out on a limb, feeling cut off from any reason for hope, “What is this conversation that you are holding with each other as you walk?”

“Are you the only visitor to Jerusalem who does not know the things that have happened there in these days?”

What are the conversations focused on when you are feeling out on a limb, alone and abandoned? Do we remind ourselves of the confident promises of the Lord?

I rejoice that Jesus promises, “I am the vine; you are the branches. If a man remains in me and I in him, he will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing” (John 15:5).

Remain connected to Jesus, even when feeling abandoned out on a limb and you will bear much good fruit.
