EVERY WORD OF GOD FOR

TEXT: LUKE 10: 38-42
Key Verse: John 1: 1. In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
Mary and Martha were the sisters of Lazarus, the man that died and was raised from the dead after four days by the Lord Jesus. The Bible makes us understand that the Lord Jesus Christ loves this
family so much that he came visiting one day, Martha spent time preparing food in the kitchen, while Mary listened to the Word at the Master's feet. Many people today are carried away by issues that are not eternally rewarding and prefer to go for worldly things that will not last.
Not just spending time to listen to the word of God, Mary did something
spectacular again. At Bethany, she anointed the feet of our Lord Jesus Christ with very costly ointment and wiped His feet with her hair and the house was filled with the odour of the ointment. The Lord said she did this against the day of His burying. Mary was always making the best decisions to the point that today her actions are not forgotten, even though Martha and Judas Iscariot, at different occasions, were in opposition to these steps she took. Many may want to discourage you in serving God by their evil counsels, but remain strong and continue in the race until you brace the tape.
Always take the best decisions that will be pleasing to God and record your name in the Book of Life. The Samaritan woman, in her conversation with the Lord, by the well side, ended up giving away her desire for ordinary water to accept the “Living water” of the Lord Jesus Christ which automatically turned her to an evangelist running into town to proclaim Him and gather people to come and confirm her findings. Are you confused about decisions to take in life, or how to get good counsel? Seek God's face in prayers. Spend for the work of God instead of luxuries that end in this world. Go out for evangelism to spread the word of life.
Thought for the day:
Come to Jesus Christ with all your troubles
Song for the day:
Come believing (2x)
Bible reading for the day:
Deuteronomy 28; Mark 15:27-47
