They said to each other, "Did not our hearts burn within us while He talked to us on the road, while He opened to us the Scriptures?"
- Luke 24:32
 
I felt I needed to repeat this verse again when I sang one of my favorite hymns, "My Faith Looks Up to Thee." we pray, "My zeal inspire," To have that zeal means to have a burning passionate feeling within our hearts for the cause of Christ and His kingdom. This zeal needs rekindling. This is what brought me to this verse again.

Unlike the disciples, we are not able to see and hear Christ personally. Yet we can enjoy His presence in Word and Sacrament when we worship together, as we shall do in our worship service on Sunday.
 
It is comforting for us to know that the burning feeling that Christ's presence provided came while "He opened to them the Scriptures." This same Christ, who suffered and died for all, reveals Himself to us in the Scriputres.

"Let Thy dear Word,
Mid doubt and strife,
Be strong within us burning,
That we be faithful unto death." Amen
