Hearts on fire

The Christ is still present today to walk with us and set our hearts on fire with the spiritual facts of being.

As two men journey one afternoon from Jerusalem to a village called Emmaus, another man joins them, whom they do not recognize and regard as a stranger. See Luke 24:13–32 .

This stranger is actually Jesus, who asks what the two disciples are discussing between themselves. Cleopas and the other disciple tell the stranger about Jesus of Nazareth, a great prophet, who spoke and acted with God's authority. They tell him how the chief priests and rulers had condemned Jesus to death and caused him to be crucified. And now, they say, some women claim to have been told by angels that Jesus is alive. And when some disciples went and investigated the tomb, they found it empty!

After rebuking their little faith, the stranger lovingly instructs them on how Jesus' life and ministry fulfilled all Scriptural prophecies about the Messiah and his spiritual kingdom. Not only does Jesus walk with them toward Emmaus; he walks them through Scriptural prophecy about his mission. As they hear his explanations their hearts begin to open to a bright new hope and promise.
