Neill: the pilgrimage

Friday, June 6, 2014
    Commemoration of Ini Kopuria, Founder of the Melanesian Brotherhood, 1945
    As they talked and discussed these things with each other, Jesus himself came up and walked along with them; but they were kept from recognizing him.
    —Luke 24:15-16 (NIV)
    The true meaning of faith can be learned only on pilgrimage, and to the end of time the people of God will be the pilgrim people. But this is not an unaccompanied journey. The experience of the believing company is always that of the two disciples who walked to Emmaus on the evening of the first Easter Day: “Jesus himself drew near and went with them.”
    ... Stephen Neill (1900-1984), Jesus Through Many Eyes, Philadelphia: Fortress Press, 1976, p. 195 (see the book)
    See also Luke 24:15-16; Ps. 39:12; 119:19; Matt. 8:20; Luke 9:58; John 15:19; 17:14-16; Heb. 11:13; 1 Pet. 2:11-12
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, when least at home, we are most at home with You.
