What would happen if you looked for Jesus on all the pages of your Bible? Would you read it differently? Would it satisfy your hunger more? On this episode of the Live Like It’s True podcast, Kristen Wetherell and I are exploring the story of the two disciples on the Road To Emmaus, who didn’t realize they were having a conversation with Jesus about the Bible—until He opened their eyes.
Kristen is a pastor’s wife, mom, author and speaker from the Chicagoland area. Check out her new book, “Help for the Hungry Soul.”

Our Deep Spiritual Hunger for God

This is a story of two travelers who walked with Jesus for many miles, then begged him to stay because they wanted him to keep talking. And it gives us a window into our own spiritual appetite:

“This story tells us something about our deep spiritual need, this hunger that God created us to have for him. Only God can open our eyes. This is not: ‘pull yourself up by your bootstraps, do all the right things to be a good Christian, open your Bible and read it, pursue Jesus on your own strength…’

That’s not what the Christian life is. It’s a total, One hundred percent abiding in and dependence on the Lord, and I think we see that here.” Kristen Wetherell

How will you depend on the Lord to give you an appetite for his Word today?
