Principle 1 – Circumstances of life can cause the believer to lose heart.

Situations will affect a Christian but should never overwhelm him/her.

The Christian is a conqueror!

slide4
Having a sad heart is like being in a thin mist.

We can see spiritual truth in difficult circumstances but not clearly.

Cleopas’ answer to Jesus’ question contains the Gospel!

So why his condition?

He let circumstances dictate and lost his spiritual bearings.

slide6
Principle 2 – Losing heart can lead to a form of spiritual blindness.

This is not the thin mist of a sad heart but the thick fog of a slow heart!

A pitiful state for a Christian to be in.

slide7
How did Jesus deal with His followers?
  • Herebukedthem (24:25-26)
  • Hegraciously lifted them out of their condition (24:27).

Followers with burning hearts (verses 27-35)

Jesus revealed to them all the Old Testament said about Him.

Result? The disciples recognised Him and their hearts burned!

They regained spiritual perspective.

slide9
Principle 3 – The Christian’s heart should always be burning because of the facts of history concerning the resurrection and because of the resultant personal implications.
slide10
Personal implications:

union with Christ meaning:

sins forgiven;

justification;

Christ always with us;

conquerors of sin/life/death;

holiness in this life;

sure hope of glory.
