The Resurrection and the Life

GUWG-ResurrectionWe continue our journey into every word spoken by Jesus in the Gospels to help us all KNOW JESUS MORE NOW.

We’re taking a deeeeep dive into this rather provocative question: Who did Jesus say he is?

We started with these three answers: Son of Man, Son of God and Messiah.

Now we’re in the midst of eight “I am” statements Jesus made that further define who he is. The first four: the Bread of Life, the Light of the World, the Gate and the Good Shepherd.

Today’s “I am” is embedded in a story about a man named Lazarus.

One Thing

A woman named Martha invited Jesus into her home. What happened next gives us some valuable lessons for today:

The One Thing

She had a sister called Mary, who sat at the Lord’s feet listening to what he said. But Martha was distracted by all the preparations that had to be made.

She came to him and asked, “Lord, don’t you care that my sister has left me to do all the work by myself? Tell her to help me!”

“Martha, Martha,” the Lord answered, “you are worried and upset about many things, but only one thing is needed. Mary has chosen what is better, and it will not be taken away from her.”

(Luke 10:39-42)

Are you more Martha or Mary?
