At His Feet-One Thing
There were two sisters Mary and Martha, Jesus visited with them often. On His first visit Martha was busy preparing food for Him and the other guest in the House. Mary was setting at Jesus feet listening to Him speak the word. Martha became upset because she was struggling trying to get the meal ready alone. She went to Jesus and asked Him to tell Mary to help her but Jesus didn’t respond as Martha had hoped He said “Martha you are worried and upset over all these details but there is only one thing necessary (worth being concerned about) Mary has discovered it, she has chosen the good part.” Jesus in essence was saying to Martha, Mary is doing the most important thing she is seeking the word, she is listening to me, she is gaining knowledge of me, the Father and kingdom living. Mary is taking the time needed to grow a relationship with me. Taken from Luke 10:38-40 NLT
What are your thoughts?
Where do you see yourself in this scenario?
Are you choosing the most important thing on a daily bases or are you letting the cares and distractions of your life pulled you away from Jesus?
What one word or phrase is standing out or speaking to you the most?
How do we begin to get our priorities straight?
How do we begin to draw away from the world’s way of doing things and learn to do it God’s way?
How will setting at Jesus feet on a regular help you in getting to the place you want to be in life, in God?
It is the desire of my heart that you seek me daily. I want you to spend time with me, getting to know me as you would any other person who is important to you. I want you to know me with your whole heart.
Read Luke 10:38-42
John 1:1-4 In the beginning the Word already existed. He was with God, and he was God. He was in the beginning with God. He created everything there is. Nothing exists that he didn't make. Life itself was in him, and this life gives light to everyone.
Father God, Blessed Savior help me today to keep focus on the most important one thing. I desire to sit at your feet, to draw closer to You and to hear Thy word. Let me not put the cares and distractions of my life before you. Help me to remember You are my life, You are the Word and the Word gave life to everything that was created. You are the One who holds this life together. In Jesus loving and caring name I pray. Amen
