Sitting at the Feet of Jesus

Are we too busy serving God to pay attention to Him? In this sermon, Lin Junxian draws from the example, of Mary and Martha in Luke 10. Mary was found sitting at the feet of Jesus, while her sister Martha was busy preparing refreshments. Why did Jesus conclude that Mary had chosen the good part? Pastor Junxian unpacks the heart condition of Martha: she drew her self-worth and purpose from fulfilling her duty, but that drew her away from Jesus. When we busy ourselves—even if we are serving the church—we must be careful not to ignore the Lord, but take the necessary time for silence and solitude in order to hear His still, small voice in every part of our lives. When we sit at the feet of Jesus like Mary did, we listen to Him, we surrender fully to Him and we honour Him—that is the portion for every believer.
