Never, be to busy for Him...

Luke 10:38-42  (KJV)

38 Now it came to pass, as they went, that he entered into a certain village: and a certain woman named Martha received him into her house.

39 And she had a sister called Mary, which also sat at Jesus' feet, and heard his word.

40 But Martha was cumbered about much serving, and came to him, and said, Lord, dost thou not care that my sister hath left me to serve alone? bid her therefore that she help me.

41 And Jesus answered and said unto her, Martha, Martha, thou art careful and troubled about many things:

42 But one thing is needful: and Mary hath chosen that good part, which shall not be taken away from her.

We can learn a very valuable lesson from Mary and Martha's encounter with Jesus when He came to the house of Martha. Martha is just like many of us busy, busy, busy... I can't go to church, because I have to do this... I can't make it tonight to service because I have to do that... This isn't new, news we all have heard excuses and honestly at some point we have all used them....

But, the truth lays within the scripture with Jesus' words to Martha.. It is that Martha seems frustrated with Mary. Martha is busting her rump doing things serving, probably cleaning getting things ready things we all probably find our selves doing often instead of going to the House of God...

Martha questioned Jesus, DON'T YOU CARE, I am doing all this alone, while my sister left me to do the work while she is sitting down with you?... It was these next words where we get a tow stomper... Jesus said that Mary was doing it all right. She put her priority in being in HIS presence.

You see, it is in HIS presence that everything will all start to come together. You will build your relationship with HIM, and you will have everything that you will need to serve HIM.

I want you to start this week. Put Him first. Seek HIS face. Make a way to be in the House of the Lord. When you come to worship and you are able to experience being in HIS presence, you will understand why Mary dropped what she was doing just to dwell in HIS presence.
