“My dear Martha, you are worried and upset over all these details! There is only one thing worth being concerned about. Mary has discovered it, and it will not be taken away from her.”
- Luke 10:38-44 (NLT)
It's easy to do church and do Christianity. We go to church, we do our thing, we bring a bible, we sing our songs, we pray and then we're good with God, right? Cuz that's the recipe for a successful Christian life, right?
Oh no, my friend, you would be wrong. If you were playing Press Your Luck you would've "stopped" on a whammy. You see, we can do all day long, but if we aren't taking time to sit at the feet of Jesus and hear from his heart and learn from his Words, then we're doing it all wrong.
Mary sat at Jesus' feet and spent time listening to his teaching. She had an up-close-and-personal relationship with her Savior. And Jesus wants an up-close-and-personal relationship with you as well. So take a moment, think about this verse, and spend some time with your Savior.
Lord, I want more of you than what I get at church on Sunday mornings. I want a deeper, up-close-and-personal relationship with you. I know it's all that matters in this world, so I'm seeking you now. Draw near to me as I draw near to you. In Jesus' name, amen.
