"Martha was cumbered about much serving."

"Martha was cumbered about much serving."
Luke 10:40

Her fault was not that she served: the condition of a servant well becomes every Christian. 
"I serve," should be the motto of all the princes of the royal family of heaven.

 Nor was it her fault that she had "much serving." 
We cannot do too much. Let us do all that we possibly can;
 let head, and heart, and hands, be engaged in the Master's service. It was no fault of hers that she was busy preparing a feast for the Master. 

Happy Martha, to have an opportunity of entertaining so blessed a guest; 
and happy, too, to have the spirit to throw her whole soul so heartily into the engagement. 

Her fault was that she grew "cumbered with much serving," 
so that she forgot him, and only remembered the service.
 She allowed service to override communion, and so presented one duty stained with the blood of another. 

We ought to be Martha and Mary in one: we should do much service, and have much communion at the same time.
 For this we need great grace. 

It is easier to serve than to commune.
 Joshua never grew weary in fighting with the Amalekites; 
but Moses, on the top of the mountain in prayer, 
needed two helpers to sustain his hands.

 The more spiritual the exercise, the sooner we tire in it. 
The choicest fruits are the hardest to rear: 
the most heavenly graces are the most difficult to cultivate. 

Beloved, while we do not neglect external things, 
which are good enough in themselves, 
we ought also to see to it that we enjoy living, 
personal fellowship with Jesus. 

See to it that sitting at the Saviour's feet is not neglected, 
even though it be under the specious pretext of doing him service. 

The first thing for our soul's health, the first thing for his glory, and the first thing for our own usefulness, 
is to keep ourselves in perpetual communion with the Lord Jesus, 
and to see that the vital spirituality of our religion is maintained over and above everything else in the world.

If you are not a believer in Jesus Christ, 
you can be accepted into his kingdom.
 I invite you to let him to make of you what He always wanted.


 God Almighty, I come to you in the precious name of Jesus, 

who died for me to make me free of sin, 

I want Jesus to enter in to my heart and make me free, 

I confess that He is the son of God. 

I ask to change my heart and to give me wisdom to understand 

your Holy Word full of promises of eternal value, not only to live 

on this earth, but to be expectant of my life in heaven. 

In the precious name of Jesus I ask.

“The true minister of Christ knows that the true value of a sermon must lie, 
not in its fashion and manner, but in the truth which it contains.
