A Thought For Your Christian Journey:

 

Hearts That Burn

Luke 24:32 32 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?

Nothing will set your heart on fire more than knowing that you walk with and talk with the Lord Jesus Christ.  But what does it really mean to say that one has a heart that burns.  It means that there is something inside of them that drives them or motivates them in an extraordinary way.  This certainly should be the case for every born again Christian.  Yet, there are many days when born again Christians struggle to feel just ordinary.  Extraordinary would be described by many as a reach on most days, and, on some days, as simply out of reach. 

The first step in having a heart that burns is to find yourself in the presence of the Lord.  If a born again Christian is going to get himself into the presence of the Lord, then he or she must make a very conscious effort to walk with the Lord.  The disciples on the Road to Emmaus found themselves in the presence of Jesus because they walked with Him on their journey.  It seems over simplistic, but it is the reality of our daily lives.  We often find ourselves out of fellowship with our Lord because we just don’t seek to be in His presence. 

Jeremiah 29:13 13 And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart.

Things that bring us near to God include a daily God-and-I time, regular church attendance for Bible study and worship, and fellowship with God’s people wherein we actually and purposefully seek God together.  These and many other things help us to seek God, who wishes to be found by us, and desires set our hearts on fire for Him and His glorious purposes. 

So, what about you?  Does your heart burn from the presence of the Lord Jesus Christ?
