Last week, I went to the Shepherds’ Conference.
It was a fruitful time of refreshment and encouragement! Though the overall conference has a niche audience of pastors & ministry leaders, the overall messages had thoroughly addressed issues that every godly man should consider.
One major takeaway for me was seeing the love of God and the love for His Word. I could feel the infectious joy that the speakers had for the Lord and it showed through their passionate preaching and exposition of Scripture.
As we drove back from the conference, I had this verse in mind:
…”Did not our hearts burn within us while he talked to us on the road, while he opened to us the Scriptures?” [Luke 24:32]
It is the soul’s exposure to Scripture and the strivings of the Holy Spirit within that impel heart affections to God.
