A Heart On Fire OLS — Week Four #2

Have you ever felt as though you were all alone in the world?

Even in a crowd, maybe you’ve had the sense that no one is with you in understanding you and your current challenges in life. I have good news for you. The Lord is here. You can draw near to Him even now. In fact, He actually invites you to come into His rest and experience His gentle and humble heart.

Jesus says,

Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.
Matthew 11:28-30

In Week 4 of A Heart On Fire we have studied the fact that Jesus is Immanuel — God with us. We looked at the deity of Christ and the fact that “the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us, and we saw His glory, glory as of the only begotten from the Father, full of grace and truth” (John 1:14).

I loved the quote by A.W. Tozer because in his words we catch a glimpse of Jesus, the One who is here and the One who is with us even now:

The very same Jesus – a Saviour and Advocate who stands before the Father taking full responsibility for you and being easier to get along with than the nicest preacher you ever knew and being easier to approach than the humblest friend you ever had. The very same Jesus – He is the sun that shines upon us. He is the star of our night. He is the giver of our life and the rock of our hope. He is our safety and our future. He is our righteousness, our sanctification, our inheritance. You find that He is all of this in the instant that you move your heart towards Him in faith. This is the journey to Jesus that must be made in the depths of the heart and being. This is a journey where feet do not count.
A.W. Tozer

Oh I love thinking about the fact that Jesus is here and that He is with me. I have had an incredible sense of His presence these days and oh, what a comfort He is to me.

Your assignment this week is the Week 5, Days 1-7, in A Heart On Fire.

♥ God bless you as you continue this great adventure of knowing Him!
