Jottings – Let Us Speak of Jesus

Jottings

Commenting on Luke 24:13-35: “Let us learn a lesson from the two travelers to Emmaus. Let us speak of Jesus, when we are sitting in our houses and when we are walking by the way, whenever we can find a disciple to speak to. (Deuteronomy 6:7.) If we believe we are journeying to a heaven where Christ will be the central object of every mind, let us begin to learn the manners of heaven, while we are yet upon earth. So doing we shall often have One with us whom our eyes will not see, but One who will make our hearts ‘burn within us’ by blessing the conversation.”

Audio: Kadesh Barnea

Likewise, when the Lord sent you from Kadesh Barnea, saying, ‘Go up and possess the land which I have given you,’ then you rebelled against the commandment of the Lord your God, and you did not believe Him nor obey His voice. Deuteronomy 9:23 NKJV

There were giants in the land and the children of Israel, cowering in fear, turned back from the blessings of the Promise Land. They believed the ten spy’s majority report, scoffed at the 2 spy’s minority report, and rebelled against the commandment of the Lord not believing or obeying His voice.

What about us? Will we believe God’s Word and move forward into His blessings? Or will we not believe God nor obey His voice?

Recorded: Sunday January 6, 2008 at the North York Gospel Chapel, York, PA
