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,

Why Lord why me?

Many people ask; why Lord why me? Hezekiah said, " indeed it was for my own peace That I had great bitterness; But You have lovingly delivered my soul from the pit of corruption, For You have cast all my sins behind Your back ," Isaiah 38:17. Did you hear that? All things work for your good. God loves you regardless. However, that you do in the prime of your life impacts the remainder of your years, even hereafter. If you’re born again, you allow the Lord to undertake, but if you’re not born again you certainly deprive your latter years. Hezekiah had boils and was supposed to die because of them. He said, "I shall go to the gates of Sheol" and sin shall make an end of me. But when he repented, God undertook deliverance for him, he said, " What shall I say? He has both spoken to me, And He Himself has done it. I shall walk carefully all my years in the bitterness of my soul, " Isaiah 38:15 knowing that God has restored me. For this reason, he said I’ll prai

This is our God!

And it will be said in that day: "Behold, this is our God; We have waited for Him, and He will save us. This is the LORD; We have waited for Him; We will be glad and rejoice in His salvation , Isaiah 25:9. You must be able to look around your life and say, This is the LORD! He has done wonderful things for all people, for on this mountain (the church) the hand of the LORD will rest, and He will spread out His hands in our midst " As a swimmer reaches out to swim, " Isaiah 25:11. This is our God; His counsels of old are faithfulness and truth. In his mountain The LORD of hosts has promised to make for all people a feast, " He will swallow up death forever, And the Lord GOD will wipe away tears from all faces; The rebuke of His people He will take away from all the earth; For the LORD has spoken, " Isaiah 25:8. We’re privileged, rather blessed because we’re living in the days of the Lord, " Of which salvation the prophets have enquired and searched diligentl
