Our Hearts. March 2
And they said one to another, Did not our heart burn within us, while he talked with us by the way, and while he opened to us the scriptures? Luke 24:32
There are times we read, pray, sing, take in Gods word all in good devotion. Then there are also times God causes His word and the presence of Jesus through the Holy Spirit to burn within our hearts. Strange thing this is because we never really know just when the marvelous presence of God will come in such a precious way. In the story we took our verse from today, two men were walking about 7 miles from Jerusalem to Emmaus after the resurrection of Jesus. Suddenly another man was walking with them. We know it was Jesus but they didn’t because God had hid it from them. How wonderful that conversation must have been as Christ went thru the Bible explaining the things concerning Him. By the time the evening was over and Christ had revealed Himself to them and then vanished, They said something like, Wow wasn’t our hearts on fire as He spoke to us. This is still happening today. Keep praying, keep studying, keep putting yourself in the places of Christ and sure enough He will cause your heart to burn with his presence.
