Sermon Notes

Luke 10:38-42

38 Now as they went on their way, Jesus entered a village. And a woman named Martha welcomed him into her house. 39 And she had a sister called Mary, who sat at the Lord’s feet and listened to his teaching. 40 But Martha was distracted with much serving. And she went up to him and said, “Lord, do you not care that my sister has left me to serve alone? Tell her then to help me.” 41 But the Lord answered her, “Martha, Martha, you are anxious and troubled about many things,42 but one thing is necessary. Mary has chosen the good portion, which will not be taken away from her.”

One Point Sermon: SLOW DOWN!

  • Replace the urgent with the significant

Matthew 6:33a, 34                                                                                                                       

  • Replace the physical prep with the spiritual prep

The time to stop is when the “moment” arrives. 

The Moment: When something would happen that would enhance your relationship with God and people

Colossians 3:2

  • Replace self-absorption with personal reflection

Luke 10:40

Luke 10:41-42

  • Replace the superficial with the super-natural

Luke 10:42b

Mary was going to leave this encounter without regrets!

Jeremiah 9:23-24

23 Thus says the Lord: “Let not the wise man boast in his wisdom, let not the mighty man boast in his might, let not the rich man boast in his riches, 24 but let him who boasts boast in this, that he understands and knows me, that I am the Lord who practices steadfast love, justice, and righteousness in the earth. For in these things I delight, declares the Lord.”
