#iRevAdvent: Day 10

“But Martha…” Luke 10:40 As a mom, one thing I have been extremely conscious of is not comparing my boys to one another. I have read the research … Doing so creates self-doubt in a child, breeds jealousy, damages parent-child and sibling-sibling relationships and potentially catapults them as anxious adults. Not a good idea. That … Continue reading

#iRevAdvent: Day 9

 Mary, who also sat at Jesus’ feet and heard His word. Luke 10:39 Today, if you haven’t yet….. PUT YOURSELF IN THIS STORY. You. Be. Mary. The Lord Jesus is speaking to YOU. And these aren’t “just words” for the sake of talk. This is THE WORD (Jesus) speaking THE WORD. Mind blown. Look closely: In the … Continue reading

Luke 10:39 ESV  …Mary, which also sat at Jesus’ feet, and heard his word. Luke 10:39 KJV …Mary, who seated herself at the Lord’s feet, was continually listening to His teaching. … Continue reading

#iRevAdvent: Day 6

“Mary, who sat at the Lord’s feet…” Luke 10:39 I promise I will move on from here. But I can not quit thinking about those feet! So one more day and then I promise we will move on! Yesterday we introduced the concept of the “feet of Jesus” being the proper place of a disciple. … Continue reading

#iRevAdvent: Day 5

“…who seated herself at the Lord’s feet.” Luke 10:39 I love all versions of Scripture. Nothing thrills me more than to take one passage and compare it across multiple spectrums of translations. But my FAVORITE always trends towards the Amplified Bible. There is something so exhaustive in nature about this version. With a “double-clicking”, if … Continue reading

#iRevAdvent: Day 4

“And she had a sister named Mary…” Luke 10:39a Well I could just leave this verse right here. I have a feeling these words have potential to evoke a lot of emotion. “And she had a sister,” are turning point words in this narrative. Jesus came through the village, Martha saw Jesus, she invited Him … Continue reading

#iRevAdvent: Day 3

“…and a woman named Martha received and welcomed Him into her house.” Luke 10:38b AMP I just need to say this for the record. Martha is awesome. She gets a bad rap sometimes, but let’s be honest. If it wasn’t for these words in Luke 10:38, we wouldn’t be having this particular Advent series, would … Continue reading

#iRevAdvent: Day 2

“And while they were on their way, it occurred that Jesus entered a certain village…” Luke 10:38 Jesus and His disciples were ultimately on a journey to Jerueselum. And this side of the cross, we all know what His ministry mission ultimately was. He was on mission to save us all; to take up the … Continue reading
