Choose Wisely – The “Better” Part

September 15, 2019

Luke 10:38-42 Amplified Bible (AMP)
Martha and Mary
38 Now while they were on their way, Jesus entered a village [called Bethany], and a woman named Martha welcomed Him into her home. 39 She had a sister named Mary, who seated herself at the Lord’s feet and was continually listening to His teaching. 40 But Martha was very busy and distracted with all of her serving responsibilities; and she approached Him and said, “Lord, is it of no concern to You that my sister has left me to do the serving alone? Tell her to help me and do her part.” 41 But the Lord replied to her, “Martha, Martha, you are worried and bothered and anxious about so many things; 42 but only one thing is necessary, for Mary has chosen the good{better} part [that which is to her advantage], which will not be taken away from her.”
.

Has anyone ever made statements like this to you?

  • I am serving all “alone”; you are only listening at Jesus feet
    => you are not helping!
  • You seem only to be worshipping, praying and listening for the Lord’s words => Why aren’t you “busy” serving?

.
Another interesting thing was pointed out to me recently
=>Martha did welcome Jesus into her home, but was too “busy” serving to ask Jesus what He wanted her to do. She actually interrupts Jesus to tell Him what to do!
.
Choose wisely – the better part!

Word Study
From NetBible Luke 10:38-42

  • Bethany = where Martha, Mary & Lazarus lived Jn 11:1
    *Martha welcomed Jesus into her home as her guest
  • Mary took the initiative to sit at Jesus feet and listen to His words
  • Martha was distracted with much serving
    *Distracted means to be pulled away by something
  • Martha, Martha, you are worried and troubled about many things
    * double vocative Martha, Martha communicates emotion indicates urgency
  • But one thing is needed, and Mary has chosen that good part, which will not be taken away from her.
    * good treated as a positive for comparative (“better”)
    part[3310] = distinct from the whole – an assigned portion, share

Humbly Bow Before your King

December 31, 2017

Micah 6:8 AMP … He has told you, O man, what is good;
And what does the Lord require of you, except to be just,
and to love [and to diligently practice] kindness (compassion),
And to walk humbly with your God [setting aside any overblown sense of importance or self-righteousness]?

Before you Rise Up and Walk with your King

=> Humbly Bow Down before Him!

.

.
1Peter 5:5-7Likewise, you younger men [of lesser rank and experience], be subject to your elders [seek their counsel]; and all of you, clothe yourselves with humility toward one another [tie on the servant’s apron], for God is opposed to the proud [the disdainful, the presumptuous, and He defeats them], but He gives grace to the humble.

6 Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God [set aside self-righteous pride], so that He may exalt you [to a place of honor in His service] at the appropriate time, 7 casting all your cares [all your anxieties, all your worries, and all your concerns, once and for all] on Him, for He cares about you [with deepest affection, and watches over you very carefully].

At the Feet of Jesus

August 13, 2013

.

Hebrews 4:16 … Let us then approach the throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.
.
Luke 7:37-38, 47 … When a woman who had lived a sinful life in that town learned that Jesus was eating at the Pharisee’s house, she brought an alabaster jar of perfume, and as she stood behind him at his feet weeping, she began to wet his feet with her tears. Then she wiped them with her hair, kissed them and poured perfume on them {a beautiful act of worship}.
… Therefore, I tell you, her many sins have been forgiven–for she loved much. But he who has been forgiven little loves little.

At the Feet of Jesus

.
Come, fall before the throne of grace,
At the feet of Jesus, seek His face.
.
His love so wide and long, so high, so deep,
His power and mercy so complete,
found before the throne, at Jesus’ feet.
.
To the feet of Jesus bring all your fears,
At the feet of Jesus, mourning turned to dancing
He’ll dry all your tears.
.
Come to the throne, come worship the One you adore,
O Taste and see, His mercy and grace
At His feet, sing with joy forevermore.

.

.

Ephesians 3:17-18 … so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, may have power to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ…

Psalm 34:8 … O taste and see that the Lord [our God] is good! Blessed (happy, fortunate, to be envied) is the man who trusts and takes refuge in Him.

Psalm 30:11-12 … You have turned my mourning into dancing for me; You have put off my sackcloth and girded me with gladness, To the end that my tongue and my heart and everything glorious within me may sing praise to You and not be silent. O Lord my God, I will give thanks to You forever.

Revelation 4:9-10 … Whenever the living creatures give glory, honor and thanks to him who sits on the throne and who lives for ever and ever, the twenty-four elders fall down before him who sits on the throne, and worship him who lives for ever and ever. 

Psalm 5:11 … But let all who take refuge in you be glad; let them ever sing for joy. Spread your protection over them, that those who love your name may rejoice in you.

Thank You Lord for Your great mercy, grace and love. Help each of us come with confidence before Your throne. Thank You that as we come before You we’ll experience the joy of Jesus Christ. Let each of our hearts sing for joy today & always! In the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.
