Martha Only One Thing is Needed sermon video. What is the only one thing needed? Was Jesus saying Martha was cooking too many dishes and only one casserole was needed? Of course not! The one thing Jesus seeks above all else is time with you, time when you sit at his feet. ‘Martha, Martha, I am way more interested in our spending time together than anything else you can do for me. That’s the one thing needed by you and the one thing I need.’ That one thing will stop our bowing to society or bowing to anything else.

Sermon notes

Martha Only One Thing is Needed sermon video Luke 10:38-42

Scriptures: Luke 10:38-39; Luke 10:39-40; Luke 10:40; Luke 10:41; Matthew 6:33; Luke 10:42

Martha was busy with the preparations for the arrangements and meal, but how do you cook for God? Maybe she’d cook some “soul food.” Jesus would enjoy soul food. She’d make some cornbread, sliced onions and tomatoes, fried chicken, black eyed peas, collard greens, busy, busy. Maybe she’d thought about “Deviled Eggs,” but decided “Deviled Eggs” would offend Jesus. They would have “Angel Food Cake” and “Heavenly Delight” for desert and for later, she would make some “Divinity.” Martha looked around and found no Mary. This was for the Lord. Martha thought Mary would help make it perfect. Where was Mary?

We know how we get when someone should be helping, but isn’t. We become aggravated and angry. This is what Martha experienced and she had no problem expressing her aggravation. She found Mary sitting at the Lord’s feet listening to what he said.

What’s wrong with this picture other than Mary wasn’t helping? Mary wasn’t supposed to be in there with the men. Mary was supposed to be in the kitchen where a woman belongs, cooking for the men (kidding). Mary is out of her place. A woman’s place is in the kitchen, right? (continue sermon notes)
