The Mary or Martha choice.
Which are you?
“‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. Matthew 22:37 New International Version
When Jesus went to Mary, Martha and Lazarus’ house for a meal Mary was very content to sit at Jesus’ feet and listen to Him after she had completed her chores. Martha on the other hand was busy trying to make everything perfect for the master before sitting down to listen to Him. The meal that they shared is probably forgotten the next day, but the words Jesus spoke to Mary lasted her a lifetime.
How many Christians are so busy serving Jesus at youth groups, prayer meetings, Sunday school and in Bible groups they have no time to just sit and pray and read the Bible to have a conversation with Him?
Yes, serving Jesus is important, but He wants to have a relationship with Him as well.
If I go through a day without reading the Bible and praying first thing in the morning it is like trying to go to the gym for a morning workout without having a decent breakfast first.
When we learn to pray and praise God every day, it becomes the best part of our day. Joseph- Anthony: Green
How is your quiet time with Jesus doing these days?
Prayer: Please Jehovah Shammah (the Lord is present) help me to develop a quiet time to be between just You and me. A time where I can drink in the living waters of Your precious Word, a time where I can talk with You, a time when I can sing songs of praise, joy and thanks for the marvelous privilege of having someone so special as You to share such a wonderful loving relationship with. I ask this in the name of my best friend who I enjoy spending time with every day Jesus Christ. Amen.
May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.
