    Why the Name Burning Heart Christian Fellowship?

    Glad you asked.  The name is inspired by the story of two disciples who don’t recognize the risen Jesus as they walked with Him to the village of Emmaus (Luke 24:13-35).  While they didn’t recognize Him, the Truth that He shared with them created a burning sensation deep within them.  Jesus shared with them things that started to let them understand.  Later when realized they had been walking with Jesus they remarked that they should have recognized him because as he spoke and revealed the Truth of God’s Word their hearts burned within them.   We do not want to have a faith that is simply based onemotion or stirring; our faith must be built on Truth of Jesus revealed in Holy Scripture, but at the same time how can we partake in the Truth of God and not find our hearts burning within us?  If Truth is really being presented and it relates to knowing the one we were created by and for it will set our hearts on fire.

    Is a burning heart uncomfortable?

    It is not uncomfortable, but it certainly is not relaxed either.  A burning heart is a heart that is excited about the Jesus and focused on Him.  A burning heart is never content; but wants to know more of the Triune God.

    Who sets a heart to Burning?

    In Luke 24:32 we read that it was Jesus’ ability to show them Truth and make the Word of God make sense by showing them how he is the centerpiece of the scriptures and of God’s plan for humanity.  Today He has also given us the Holy Spirit who is the “Spirit of Truth who leads us into all Truth”.  The Spirit exposes the Truth of God’s Word as Jesus did on the Road to Emmaus.
