A BURNING HEART
EASTER SUNDAY | APRIL 1, 2018
This is the world’s greatest moment of heartburn. Two defeated disciples are leaving Jerusalem for Emmaus, trying unsuccessfully to process Jesus’ death. Early reports from the female disciples of Jesus’ Resurrection have not taken hold. But the Risen Lord explains why his terrible suffering and triumph over death fulfills the hopes and promises of the scriptures. After the Bible study, there is a meal, and at last Jesus is recognized! The hearts of the disciples who had walked with Jesus and understood the scriptures about his passion had begun to burn, and for them the Resurrection will become not only the key to the Bible, but an ongoing fire that shapes their lives and hearts.
Is your heart on fire? Only Christ can make hearts new and glowing!
Praise God for the power that brings life from death and turns sorrow and doubt into joy and faith.
