“They asked each other, “Were not our hearts burning within us while he talked with us on the road and opened the Scriptures to us?”” Luke 24:32 (NIV)
Today’s verse comes from the recording of two of his disciples as they were walking from Jerusalem to the village of Emmaus which was about 7-8 miles away. The time is the afternoon on Resurrection Sunday and as they walked Jesus is suddenly walking with them. What a great opportunity for these two to have Jesus, although they did not immediately recognize him, explain all about what had just happened and why. Afterwards Jesus disappears from their sight but they know they had just experienced something very special. We trust that you, my friend, have had experiences like that with your heart warmed as the Holy Spirit has lead you and opened the meaning of the Bible’s words to you. God has much to teach us every day from his Holy Word, Our hearts can not only be warmed but really burn within us as we spend time in the Bible.
