Hearts Aflame!

To read the Bible in a year, read Luke 24:1-35.
After His resurrection, Jesus talked with two men, but He kept them from recognizing Him. He wanted to know what they were talking about, and they told Him about Jesus and all things the Jewish leaders did to Him, and how they had their hopes set on Him that He would redeem Israel.
He then rebuked them for their failure to understand the Scriptures in regard to the Messiah. He proceeded to explain to them in all the Scriptures, the things pertaining to the Messiah. Something happened to them as He did this. He showed that what had happened in those days, passed just as the Scripture had said would happen. They also saw a connection between this man expounding to them the Scriptures and the Man in the Scriptures. After Jesus left them, they realized who He was and said to each other, “Did not our heart burn within us while He talked with us on the road, and while He opened the Scriptures to us?” (Luke 24:32).
Their hearts burned because someone opened up the Scriptures to them!
Pray to God that your preacher and teachers open up the Scriptures to you, and pray also that God give you the ability to open up the Scriptures for others, and that those you talk to may have hearts aflame!
