Warmth and Meaning...Sharing?
"They asked each other, "Were not our hearts burning within us while he talked with us on the road and opened Scripture to us?"" (Luke 24:32)
How are you doing with reading Scripture? Is it something you've done for quite a while? Is it something you added for Lent? If you started for Lent are you still reading Scripture? Do you use a Bible study with the scripture -- either a book on your own or with a group? I found, with my study of Dynamite Prayer and Draw the Circle, done together daily, that God was definitely "opening" Scripture. (v. 32)
Today's readings are about following Christ. The one I especially want to look at is the two Disciples walking to Emmaus. There are three things I want you to think about with this reading. First..... Jesus joins them where they are. Yes, on the "road to Emmaus." (v. 13) He also is with them as "they stood still, their faces downcast." (v. 17) THEN he walked with them and "opened Scripture." (v. 32) The third thing to notice and think about is after "their eyes were opened" (v. 31) "They got up and returned at once to Jerusalem" (v.33) to share what had happened.
So....... how are you doing with reading Scripture? Are you understanding, following and doing more as you continue to study? Are you sharing where, and how, God IS with you through it? Something to be thinking about..........
