Opened

Luke 24:45

Luke 24:45

Yesterday I thought I would read Luke. It’s my habit to look up how long a book is first and then get started. For some reason my eyes fell on verse 45 of the last chapter. And that’s as far as I got.

It reads, “Then he opened their minds so they could understand the Scriptures.” Luke 24:45

I read that verse several times and marveled at it.

Then he opened their minds so they could understand the Scriptures.

Jesus had to open their minds so they could fully understand the Scriptures. Although these men had grown up with the Scriptures and many had studied it, they didn’t really understand it all the way.

Not until Jesus stepped in.

In John’s account (20:22) He breathed on them and said, “Receive the Holy Spirit.” Through the gift of the Holy Spirit, the Apostles (and us today) can understand the Holy Words of God.

Only with God’s help, can we truly understand.

Has Jesus opened your mind?

May God’s Love be with you
