As I pondered Krista Hamrick’s beautiful artwork, which she titled, The Bible is our Burning Bush, I immediately thought of the two disciples who met the risen Christ on the road to Emmaus and they said to each other, “Did not our hearts burn within us while he talked to us on the road, while he opened to us the Scriptures?” This led me to a word study of the word heart, and a study of Luke 24:13-35
This is the message of the entire Bible — that our all-loving, gracious God has provided salvation in the Person of His Son Jesus Christ. Jesus, as He walked on the road to Emmaus that day and looked into the Scriptures with them, He said, “They testify of me. And they speak of my suffering and my glory.” May you know what it is to enter into the kingdom of God and enter into His glory one day when He comes for you.
Look in – Meditate on Luke 24:13-35 Pray to see how you might apply it to your life. Be propelled to ask galvanizing questions about your discoveries: “Because God is ______________, I will ______________.”
Look out – Meditate on Luke 24:13-35 Pray to see how you might apply it to your relationships with others. Let the nature of God impact on every relationship, for your good, and for His glory.
