Burning Heart

Did not our heart burn within us while He talked with us on the road, and while He opened the Scriptures to us?” – Luke 24:32

That is the proper & logical response to reading God’s Word: a burning heart!

I Went To Pieces

“For when I turned away from You, the one God, and pursued a multitude of things, I went to pieces.” – Augustine

Who among us cannot relate to Augustine’s confession? Without God in our lives, we will go to pieces. Turning away from the one God is to pursue death.

Confused God

“God is not the author of confusion but of peace,” – 1 Cor. 14:33

Whenever you see disorder, God is not the author. Whenever you see uncertainty, God is not the author. Whenever you see frenzy, God is not the author.

God is the author of harmony. God is the author of tranquility. God is the author of reconciliation.

Unquiet Hearts

Augustine was someone who knew something about having an unquiet heart.

May we never cease seeking that which completes our hearts, the Lord Jesus Christ!
