Resurrection HeartburnBy Dr. David Biberstein g66 Published: Apr 18, 2020
Easter ham, Easter eggs, and Easter candy can give you heartburn. But eating with the resurrected Christ will produce a burning heart. Listen to Luke 24:30-31: “When he was at the table with them, he took bread, gave thanks, broke it and began to give it to them. Then their eyes were opened and they recognized him and he disappeared from their sight. They asked each other, ‘Were not our hearts burning within us while he talked with us on the road and opened the Scriptures to us?’”
The Emmaus disciples met the resurrected Christ and the result was a heart set afire with enthusiasm and service. Such burning hearts we need today in the Church. As John Wesley said it, “Get on fire for God and we will come and see you burn.” This happened to these early Christians.
This Easter, will you experience heartburn or a burning heart?
