One Thing Is Needed

Good morning, good things are happening in so many lives. It is very exciting to see lives transformed by His grace!

Have you made time to sit at Jesus feet today?

Luke 10:39-42. 39 And she had a sister called Mary, who also sat at Jesus feet and heard His word. 40 But Martha was distracted with much serving, and she approached Him and said, “Lord do You not care that my sister has left me to serve alone? Therefore tell her to help me.” 41 And Jesus answered and said to her, Martha, Martha, you are worried and troubled about many things. 42 But one thing is needed, and Mary has chosen that good part, which will not be taken away from her.”

Many things in life can distract us from what is really needed, it can be your career, or business to name just a few. I am sure there were many things Martha felt needed to be done, but she was worried and troubled about many things.

What has been troubling you? Are you concerned about your business succeeding, sales, having enough clients? Are your concerned about a promotion, or just keeping your job in this economy? If you are worried and troubled about many things, then you have become distracted.

Mary on the other hand appeared to be neglecting her responsibilities, just sitting there at Jesus feet. Also notice in verse 40 Martha accused Jesus of not caring. Do you see what worry does to a person? It opens the door to fear and then instead of casting our cares on the Lord for He cares for us, we don’t cast our cares because like Martha who accused Jesus, we also begin to blame Him as well because we don’t know how much He cares. He cares more about our success than we do.

If you will re-prioritize and sit at Jesus feet to hear His Word, resting in the finished work of the cross, receiving His abundance of grace and free gift of righteousness, you WILL reign in life! Only one thing is needed and Mary has chosen that one thing.

Today will you choose that one thing? How important is your success, more important than the author or your success? Make time today to sit at His feet, adjust your schedule to go to sit at His feet and learn of His grace. Feed on it continually and by His grace he will do what you couldn’t do in a lifetime, he will bring the business, or the promotion, He can do in one second what we in all our self efforts could not achieve.

Remember in the parable of the sower the seed sown among thorns were the ones who hear the Word, and the cares of this world the deceitfullness of riches and the desires for other things entering in CHOKE the word and it becomes unfruitful. Trust Him, He will care for you!
