The book called Luke in the Bible, was written by a Gentile believer named Luke, who was a close associate of the Apostle Paul. He set out to carefully investigate the truth concerning Jesus Christ, using the eyewitness accounts of those who were with and knew Jesus and His ministry. His intent in writing this Gospel was so that his readers would know the truth regarding Jesus and what they have been taught concerning Him. It is our hope in studying this Gospel, that we too would better understand the truth concerning Jesus, so that we may better know Him and make Him known to others.
We look at Jesus' interaction with two women; Martha and Mary. Martha welcomes Jesus and was distracted with her hard work. The problem with Martha was not her desire to serve Jesus. She lost the sight of the one for whom the service was rendered and missed out in the true blessings of being with Jesus. Mary was focused on Jesus and was devoted to Jesus, simply loving Jesus by listening to His words. Today's message is from Luke 10:38-42
