Sunday 5.23 Song+Word=BURN
Sunday 5.23 Song+Word=BURN There are many comparisons between God and fire. Purifying fire. Consuming fire. The Holy Spirit appeared as Fire at Pentecost. Here's my favorite from just after the Resurrection: Luke 24:"The Walk to Emmaus 13 That same day two of Jesus' followers were walking to the village of Emmaus, seven miles from Jerusalem. 14 As they walked along they were talking about everything that had happened. 15 As they talked and discussed these things, Jesus himself suddenly came and began walking with them. 16 But God kept them from recognizing him. 17 He asked them, "What are you discussing so intently as you walk along?" They stopped short, sadness written across their faces. 27 Then Jesus took them through the writings of Moses and all the prophets, explaining from all the Scriptures the things concerning himself. 30 As they sat down to eat, he took the bread and blessed it. Then he broke it and gave it to them. 31 Suddenly, their eyes were opened, and they recognized him. And at that moment he disappeared! 32 They said to each other, "Didn't our hearts burn within us as he talked with us on the road and explained the Scriptures to us?" May the fire of Passion for Him burn in you and in me and SET the hearts of those WE meet ON FIRE as Jesus reveals Himself here in SC, in the US, in FRANCE, to the uttermost ends of the Earth.
