Sit down, Martha!

The story of Martha and Mary tells us that there are two types of Christians out there; where one is a worshipper and another is a waitperson or server.

You can choose what you want to be, that’s to be a worshipper or server.

But listen to this before you do;

"Now it happened as they went that He entered a certain village; and a certain woman named Martha welcomed Him into her house. And she had a sister called Mary, who also sat at Jesus' feet and heard His word. 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." And Jesus answered and said to her, "Martha, Martha, you are worried and troubled about many things. But one thing is needed, and Mary has chosen that good part, which will not be taken away from her."" Luke 10:38-42.

Mary chose the best part, to sit down at his feet and not be worried, frustrated, confused and troubled about many things, and like Archimedes I guess she said I got it! That’s what is needed.

She sat at Jesus' feet and heard His word, and allowed no distraction at all. That was the good part my friend, which also if you do, will not be taken away from you.

Do you sometimes feel frustrated and confused like Martha? The message of the kingdom of God was never designed to confuse you, but that through it you may see the light. 

I said you can choose what you want to become, that’s to be a worshipper or server. A worshipper takes his/her time siting at the feet of Jesus. Mary chose the best part, and like Paul, it was to live in Christ.

However, there are certain things you cannot get to choose. For example Jesus said to the mother of Zebedee's sons who came to Him with her sons, kneeling down and asking Him that He may grant them to sit, one on the right hand and the other on the left, in His kingdom. But Jesus answered and said, "it is for those for whom it is prepared by My Father" Matthew 20:23.

I listen to some believers make declarations, and in my heart I say that’s to our to give or say but God.

Apostle Paul says, "Now you are the body of Christ, and members individually. And God has appointed these in the church: first apostles, second prophets, third teachers, after that miracles, then gifts of healings, helps, administrations, varieties of tongues. Are all apostles? Are all prophets? Are all teachers? Are all workers of miracles? Do all have gifts of healings? Do all speak with tongues? Do all interpret? But earnestly desire the best gifts. And yet I show you a more excellent way." 1 Corinthians 12:27-31. 

God is the one who appoints, He gives the Holy Spirit and distributes diversities of gifts, differences of ministries, and diversities of activities to each one individually as He wills.

God bless you,

Questionable circumstances are a red flag

  Stay away from a preacher who never takes time off even if ill/old, who insists on dealing with certain people - that’s a red flag!  Questionable circumstances are a red flag believers have to look out for. Here is how the gospel works; you’re told the news first and then you relay it to others. Never claim ownership of it, instead pass it on, share and never enforce it upon a generation. Treating it as if it is yours is corruption or abuse of the delegated powers. Remember Rome was not built in one day, meaning the gospel is a complex task, it takes all our efforts, and great achievement takes time and effort and should not be rushed. So you pass it own to show that you have understood the gospel. No generation claims supremacy, the fathers passed it own to their sons (kings), prophets to other prophets too, and to Jesus, and Jesus to the apostles (Holy Ghost), and the apostles to us and so forth. I like how John puts it, he said, "I baptize with water: but there standeth one a

Experience God's peace!

Reverend LC Muzembi  "Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things" Philippians 4:8 KJV Yes my friend, stay true to the Lord, remember he is coming soon. If you do this, you will experience God's peace, and it’s peace which will keep you through this journey.  The Lord said, " Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you " John 14:27. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. And the Apostle said, " Those things, which ye have both learned, and received, and heard, and seen in me, do: and the God of peace shall be with you " Philippians 4:9. In short, read your bible, study it through, receive its truths with open heart or the hearing of faith, acknowledge
