What is your ONE THING?πŸ˜ƒ

Recently on a Sunday night, I preached a message about what is the one thing that you know that you should be doing for God yet you aren’t? Friend, I know that there are many activities, ball games, parties, and business opportunities calling for your attention this summer. But what is the one thing that God is calling you to do that you haven’t done? I know that God has brought something intoΒ your mind right now!

Luke 10:41-42 “And Jesus answered and said unto her, Martha, Martha, thou art careful and troubled about many things: But one thing is needful: and Mary hath chosen that good part, which shall not be taken away from her.”

Mary chose sitting over serving.Β 

When was the last time you took a rest? Mary sat down and listened to what Jesus had to say. Sitting and listening to Jesus helps your spirit be sweeter.Β Plutarch said it like this,Β “Rest is the sweet sauce of labor.” Do you need to take a rest? Is God calling your from your busyness and calling you into a period of rest? Listen to His voice.

Mary chose to let Jesus impress her than trying to impress Jesus.Β 

One of the saddest things that I see as a pastor is when Christians try to control, manipulate, and force others to serve with them. They allow serving to become their identity. Mary chose to not try to impress Jesus but to let Jesus impress her. Imagine what she heard Jesus talk about!

Friend, when was the last time Jesus impressed you? When did you last spend some time mega-dosing in His Word and He so magnified and impressed Himself on you that you were overwhelmed and amazed at Him? Maybe God is calling you to rekindle your fire and love for His Word.

Mary’s choice caused her to hear Jesus’ praise.Β 

Jesus said that Mary chose the good part. He commended her and praised her. Often we think about praising God but have you ever thought about God praising you? When you choose Jesus, He praises you. He cheers for your growth. He desires to be with you. Listen for God’s voice encouraging you along your journey!
