“… Jesus Himself drew near and went with them. … And beginning at Moses and all the prophets, He (Jesus) expounded unto them in all the scriptures the things concerning Himself. … And their eyes were opened, and they knew Him … And they said one to another, Did not our HEARTS BURN WITHIN US, while He (Jesus) talked with us by the way, and while He opened to us the scriptures?” (Luke 24:15, 27-32).
I love this chapter! It might be one of my favorite in all of the New Testament. Maybe in all of the Bible. In the margin of my Bible, by this passage, I wrote, “There’s nothing as important as we travel down the road of life than to have the full assurance that Jesus is walking with us. Having jesus walking and talking with us as we travel down the path of life is vital!”
It’s good to know that regardless of how dark our path may appear today and no matter how disappointed, disillusioned, and discouraged we may have become, Jesus is always right there with us!
As I read this passage this morning, I was once again reminded that it’s always an “eye-opening” experience to have Jesus speak to us through His word and point us, not to men or movements, but to Himself! Concerning this, I like what one author wrote about having Jesus as our all-in-all:
“I shall now close with these words: If you ever get to the place where Jesus Christ isn’t enough . . . if you ever get to the place where you think that you can advance beyond Christ . . . then you haven’t met the Christ of Colossians. And your Christ is too small. We’ve majored in minors. We’ve made the Christian life about topics, concepts, methods, activities, and techniques. I ask you to consider all of this in the presence of so great a Christ. Here is my heart. May God raise up women and men who are humble enough to learn how to live by the indwelling life of Christ with other believers. And who are courageous enough to proclaim the unsearchable riches of that life in this hour.”
We all have a journey this side of eternity. It’s good to know that Jesus is walking and talking with us along the way. Let’s be sure we are listening to Him and looking upon Him!
God is looking for some people with hearts that BURN for Christ and Christ alone!!!
JUST REFLECTING ON JESUS THIS MORNING!!!
