Luke 24:28 And they drew nigh unto the village, whither they went: and he made as though he would have gone further.
He made like! He acted like He wanted to continue His trip. The truth is that He wanted to be invited by them to spend more time with them. I love how God is showing us that He loves us and wants to spend time with us.
This is an everyday human action and response. Jesus is showing us His heart. When it comes time for us to get into the Bible and prayer, we tend to think that it is drudgery but not to Him. He wanted to keep showing Himself to them. He wanted them to want to talk to Him. He wanted their invitation. What a picture of His love we see here.
Now as you begin working on deepening your devotional life think about this. As you consider whether or not to be in church worship services with your Christian family, think on this.
He wants to spend time with us. He desires to know you and have you know Him better. He didn’t push or coerce. He just waited on them to show some desire.
Will you seek Him today? Will you spend time with Him today?
