A burning heart

Then they said to each other, ‘Did not our hearts burn within us as he talked to us on the road and explained the scriptures to us?’

Luke 24:32

Today’s Gospel narrates the encounter of the Risen Jesus with two of His disciples on the way to Emmaus.

They couldn’t understand the events of the past two days and that morning; as Jesus had been crucified and now the women among their company, were claiming that He was alive, and risen from the dead.

They were so conflicted with their thoughts that they couldn’t recognise Him as they saw and spoke with Him.

But one thing they knew was that their hearts burned as He explained scriptures to them.

This was a new encounter that they had with the LORD.

The power that raised Jesus from the dead (even the Holy Spirit) was manifesting Himself to them.

It reminds me of what St John the Baptist said about the LORD JESUS, that He is the One Who baptises with the Holy Spirit and Fire! (Matthew 3:11).

It is the same for us, when we invite the Holy Spirit to teach us as we read and ponder the scriptures we feel our hearts burning deep within.

This is perhaps the only kind of heartburn that I desire.

To be set ablaze deep within my heart, soul and being and all over me by the fire of the Holy Spirit.

Prayer

Spirit of the Living God, fall afresh on me.

Set me on fire!

Transform my heart, my mind, my belly, my being with Your holy, radiant, all-consuming fire!

I surrender totally to Your power, for You alone are the LORD and giver of Life and light, that illuminates the darkness of every soul.

So take Your Throne in my life.

Seat on the Throne in my life and in the life of my family and rule and have perfect dominion over us forever.

Your loving kindness is better than life!

Amen.

Always & Forever,

To the Lamb,

With all my ❤
