‘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?”’ [Luke 24:32 NIV]

Two of the disciples walked along the road to Emmaus, sad about what had happened to their teacher, Jesus. He had been their inspiration for a number of years now, and he had been suddenly ripped from their lives in a hideous tragedy. Without recognising him, a man joined them and started explaining Scripture to them, unfolding the fulfilment of prophecy. They received revelation straight into their spirits, even though they didn’t know it was Jesus himself who spoke to them.

It made me happy to think that even now, thousands of years later, we still receive revelation in the same way. Don’t our hearts burn within us when the Holy Spirit teaches us? Doesn’t new knowledge and understanding reverberate through our entire beings, just like it did for those men years ago.

I love that we can recognise this experience and even identify with it. I love that our God never changes and although Jesus is not a physical presence with us, He still ministers to our hearts in the same amazing way.

What new revelation have you received of late? Does it burn within you?
