TOPIC: ONE THING IS NEEDFUL (2)
TEXT: Luke 10:42 “But one thing is needful and Mary hath chosen that good part, which shall not be taken away from her….”
This century is also known as the internet age, where we can access information at the tip of our fingers, we have come to rely heavily on it for our source of information on anything. Amazingly with all this
information life has become more complicated and stressful. It has created a very busy lifestyle.
As a believer, do you really believe that every day, only one thing is needful? Even if you have bills that are yet to be paid, or your children are not making any headway in their studies, either work or health issues, all these things can wait. Only one thing is needful — that you spend time in the Word of God.
In today’s scripture, Martha represents those believers who have received Jesus into their lives, they are born again, they love God, they care about the things of God but they have zeal without knowledge. they are more occupied with their efforts to please God, they presume they know what Jesus wants but they do things in their strength.
In the story of Luke 10, Mary represents those believers who understand that to serve Jesus is by listening to Him, by depending on His strength and abilities not our efforts and skills. Joshua 1:8 says —”This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success”. The effects of God’s words in our lives results in :
1) quality of Life..becoming younger, stronger, wiser,
soundness of mind.
2) Your health will improve greatly ( wholeness of life).
3) Your bad habits begin to fall off ( 2 Cor 3:18)
4)You will start seeing all around success (good success) and prosperity. For they are life to those who find them, And health to all their flesh. Today, make up your mind to choose the one thing that is needful.
