WHEN JESUS VISITED THE HOME OF LAZARUS AND HIS TWO SISTERS, MARY AND MARTHA, MARTHA WAS DISTRACTED BY ALL THE PREPARATIONS THAT HAD TO BE MADE. SHE WAS AGITATED WITH MARY, WHO WAS SIMPLY SITTING AT THE FEET OF JESUS LISTENING TO EVERY WORD HE SAID. SO SHE CAME TO JESUS AND SAID, “LORD, DON’T YOU CARE THAT MY SISTER HAS LEFT ME TO DO ALL THE WORK BY MYSELF? TELL HER TO COME AND HELP ME!” JESUS ANSWERED HER AND SAID:
(Luke 10:41-42) “Martha, Martha,” the Lord answered, “you are worried and upset about many things, but only one thing is needed. Mary has chosen what is better, and it will not be taken away from her.”
SADLY, THE WORD OF JESUS THAT HE HIMSELF REVEALED TO THE APOSTLE PAUL IS NOT BEING GIVEN UTMOST IMPORTANCE IN MANY OF OUR PULPITS TODAY. PAUL REFERRED TO IT AS THE SOUND DOCTRINE ENTRUSTED TO HIM (1 Tim 1:10-11) AND CALLED IT THE “GOSPEL OF GOD’S GRACE” (Acts 20:24).
(Galatians 1:11-12) “I want you to know, brothers that the gospel I preached is not something that man made up. I did not receive it from any man, nor was I taught it; rather, I received it by revelation from Jesus Christ.”
IT’S ALL ABOUT JESUS!
