WHEN JESUS VISITED THE HOME OF LAZARUS AND HIS TWO SISTERS, MARY AND MARTHA, MARTHA WAS BUSY WITH HOUSEWORK. SHE WAS AGITATED WITH MARY, WHO WAS SIMPLY SITTING AT THE FEET OF JESUS LISTENING TO EVERY WORD HE SAID. WHEN MARTHA COMPLAINED,
JESUS REPLIED: “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.” (Luke 10:41)
YOU SEE, JESUS HONORS THOSE WHO DISCERN HIS WORTH.
UNFORTUNATELY, CHRIST IS NO LONGER THE FOCUS OF MANY OF OUR PULPITS TODAY. CHRIST IS BRUSHED ASIDE TO GIVE WAY TO MEN’S WISDOM RATHER THAT THE WISDOM OF GOD WHICH IS CHRIST!
(1Cor 1:30-31) “It is because of him that you are in Christ Jesus, who has become for us wisdom from God—that is, our righteousness, holiness and redemption. Therefore, as it is written: ‘Let him who boasts boast in the Lord.’”
IN THE PAST GOD HAS SPOKEN THROUGH THE PROPHETS AND IN VARIOUS WAYS, BUT IN THESE LAST DAYS, GOD HAS SPOKEN TO US THROUGH HIS SON JESUS CHRIST.
(Heb 1:1-2) “In the past God spoke to our forefathers through the prophets at many times and in various ways, BUT IN THESE LAST DAYS HE HAS SPOKEN TO US BY HIS SON, whom he appointed heir of all things, and through whom he made the universe.”
DURING THE TRANSFIGURATION OF CHRIST, MOSES AND ELIJAH APPEARED WITH HIM. PETER WAS SO QUICK TO SUGGEST THE BUILDING OF THREE TABERNACLES ONE FOR JESUS, MOSES AND ELIJAH. WHILE PETER WAS STILL SPEAKING A VOICE FROM THE CLOUD SAID:
“This is my Son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased. Listen to him!” (Mat 17:5b)
LISTEN TO HIM!
AS BELIEVERS IN CHRIST, WE ARE ADMONISHED TO FIX OUR EYES OF JESUS, THE AUTHOR AND THE FINISHER OF OUR FAITH.
(Heb 12:2a) “Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith”
CHRIST IS NOT THE BREAD OF LIFE FOR NOTHING, WE FEED ON HIM!
