From God’s Word – How about a little heartburn? While walking to Emmaus on the same day the women found Jesus’ empty tomb, that’s what happened to the disciples. On their journey, they were joined by someone they didn’t know, a manwho taught Scriptures to them, beginning with Moses. After reaching their destination, they recognized the man as Jesus, saying to each other, “Did not our hearts burn within us on the road, while He opened the Scriptures?” On life’s Emmaus walk, full of sin’s burs and thistles, Jesus enjoins Himself to us in Word and Sacrament to teach, comfort, lead, and restore. Yes, it’s true. These Means of Grace, Word and Sacrament, give us heartburn! Well, not the digestive type that burns the throat. No, this is the Holy Spirit variety, the type inflaming our hearts because of God’s merciful love displayed in Jesus, bringing forgiveness of sins, life, and salvation. (Read the entire account of the disciples’ walking to Emmaus with Jesus in Luke 24:1-35.)
