The Stranger May Be Christ by Raymond A. Foss

Cleopas and the other traveler
like us, confused, afraid sometimes
not fully understanding the story
human hearts, human comprehension
of the lessons of God
needing others, a conversation
to reveal the truth in the scripture
the power, and the love, of God

But another part of the story,
the kindness they shared,
walking with the stranger
we need to remember too
that the stranger we encounter
the person on the street
on our journey of life, of faith
this stranger that comes up beside us
this person, traveling with us
this stranger may be Christ

Live always, as if that is the case
that the truth is revealed in the sharing of the word
that we are steeled by the sharpening
of fellow believers, the strangers
that become our teachers, our partners,
our brothers and sisters in Christ;
but live also, ever, as if that is the case
that the stranger we encounter
in our daily walk with God
could well be Christ, walking with us
