Luke- Week 25- Day 4

(32)  And they said one to another, Did not our heart burn within us, while he talked with us by the way, and while he opened to us the scriptures? (33)  And they rose up the same hour, and returned to Jerusalem, and found the eleven gathered together, and them that were with them, (34)  Saying, The Lord is risen indeed, and hath appeared to Simon. (35)  And they told what things were done in the way, and how he was known of them in breaking of bread.

Luke 25:32- 35

Explanation:

Look at what they said:  “Did not our heart burn within us”.  This wasn’t a matter of digestion.  It was a matter of conviction. Were we not convinced?  What convinced us?  “while he opened to us the scriptures”. Their conviction lead to their commission. If Jesus is real, we have to reveal. If it is true, we must tell. If He is God, then we must go!

Look at what they did:

(33)  And they rose up the same hour, and returned to Jerusalem, and found the eleven gathered together, and them that were with them, (34)  Saying, The Lord is risen indeed, and hath appeared to Simon. (35)  And they told what things were done in the way, and how he was known of them in breaking of bread.

Luke 25:33-35

What did Jesus tell the disciples that He was going to do in their lives?

“Follow me, and I will make you to become fishers of men!”

Application:

Is it true that Jesus is who He said He was? Is it true that the whole Bible speaks about Him? Is it true that His identity, rightly identified, is the issue in being saved? Then we have to realize that to know Christ is to be a follower of Jesus Christ!

Paul put it this way in Romans 10:

For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.  (14)  How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher?  (15)  And how shall they preach, except they be sent? as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things!  (16)  But they have not all obeyed the gospel. For Esaias saith, Lord, who hath believed our report?  (17)  So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.

Romans 10:13-17

Who do you need to tell about Jesus, today?
