Luke 24:32 They asked each other, “Were not our hearts burning within us while he talked with us on the road and opened the Scripture to us?
As I’ve gone through this week, with the resurrection of Jesus Christ heavily on my mind, I wonder if I had been born in those days of Jesus, would I have believed? Or would I have been one of those that doubted?
The same questions can be asked today. As He works in my life, as I see His love carry me through, as I see His great miracles of this century, do I believe? I sit in quiet places, asking Him to speak to me and guide my steps, and He does. He still speaks! His scriptures are available to us now. And is my “heart burning within me while He talks?”
I can only imagine the pain that they must have felt as the man, Jesus, hung on that cross. The loss of HOPE that they must have had. But to walk into the tomb 3 days later to find Him gone. Was there immediate response fear? Or was there great anticipation?

He rose again to show us that we can still have the Hope of Salvation in Him. And He has given us the Holy Spirit to walk us through our days.
Lord, I so look forward to the day that I can stop imagining and see you FACE TO FACE. Amen!
