Meditation on the Gospel – The road to Emmaus

“Confessing with the lips indicates in turn that faith implies public testimony and commitment. A Christian may never think of belief as a private act. Faith is choosing to stand with the Lord so as to live with Him. This “standing with Him” points toward an understanding of the reasons for believing.
