"In the evening I went very unwillingly to a society in Aldersgate Street,
where one was reading Luther's preface to the Epistle to the Romans.
About a quarter before nine, while the leader was describing the change which
God works in the heart through faith in Christ,
I felt my heart strangely warmed." - John Wesley, May 24th, 1738
They said to each other, "Didn't our hearts burn within us
as he talked with us and explained the Scriptures to us?" - Luke 24:32
Post resurrection, two of Jesus' heartbroken disciples were walking to Emmaus
when Jesus caught up with them in a visible form that they did not recognize.
He heard their sad story about what had happened to Jesus of Nazareth
and how hope was now lost.
He responded to them by taking them through the Scriptures and showing them that
what had happened was exactly what was to befall the Messiah.
Then, as they sat at supper with Him, suddenly "their eyes were opened,
and they recognized Him; and He vanished from their sight. - Luke 24:31
Their recognition of Jesus was MORE than a visual recognition.
They were recalling that His words had always affected their heart,
their inward life in a particular way. So, they were asking themselves,
"Why did we not recognize Him from the way His words were impacting Us?"
The familiar "Jesus heartburn" had, no doubt, been a subject of discussion
among the disciples on many occasions.
In this sermon series, we will take a look at the ways in which
God speaks and how we recognize it when it is God speaking.
Do you get that familiar Jesus Heartburn when
the Christ comes and speaks to you?
You will not want to miss this!
