Luke 24: 13-35
We arrived at the Miami Airport with anxious hearts. Accompanying our family was a young lady with a work visa that would legitimately allow her to be with us for a year.  However, the Consulate in Santiago warned us that the government agency in the airport, in Miami, was a different branch of government and could reject her visa and insist that she return to Chile immediately.  As we were nervously headed to the terminal by tram, a gentleman approached us and asked if he could help us. I explained to him the whole scenario, and he simply said, “Follow me.”  Along with the gentleman, we  waited our turn and handed the government agent our documents.  She studied our friend’s documents carefully, fussed a little about the year’s visa, stamped approval on the document, and we moved calmly forward to safe ground - with relief in our hearts. I turned around to thank the stranger for helping us, but he had vanished from sight.  
These verses in Luke talk about two followers of Jesus, in their grief, walking on their way to Emmaus, when a stranger appeared at their side. You know the rest of the story. Verse 31 says that all of a sudden they recognized that it was Jesus and, at that moment, He disappeared. 
Throughout the Bible we are made aware that God has revealed himself, or His will in our lives, in many ways.  Perhaps  in your own life, you can recall a time  when you, too, have “entertained angels unaware.” 

One great way to weave worship into our daily lives is to fill it with music that helps focus our hearts on our great God.  Here is a Spotify playlist that has all the songs our worship team has led us through in the last month’s Sunday evening services to get you started. It’s updated weekly, so “follow” it to keep fresh worship music in your life.
