38. Now while they were on their way, Jesus entered a village called Bethany, and a woman named Martha welcomed Him into her home.

The good part which is to our advantage

39. She had a sister named Mary, who seated herself at the Lord’s feet and was continually listening to His teaching.

40. But Martha was very busy and distracted with all of her serving responsibilities; and she approached Him and said, Lord, is it of no concern to You that my sister has left me to do the serving alone? Tell her to help me and do her part.

41. But the Lord replied to her, Martha, Martha, you are worried and bothered and anxious about so many things;

42. but only one thing is necessary, for Mary has chosen the good part that which is to her advantage, which will not be taken away from her.
LUKE 10:38‭-‬42 AMP

In the midst of your life’s demands, where is Jesus? It is possible to lose focus on our relationship with Him, the one and only thing, the good part, that which is necessary for us even though He has promised to be with us always. Is He the One you seek? Are you seated at the master’s feet?

Related: One thing

Today, most of us are running around distracted just like Martha, serving other people because we are anxious of what they will say, we are running around distracted because we want to please them.

We are worried about people’s opinions thereby neglecting the good part, that which is necessary to our advantage.

We run around troubled about what we will eat or wear on our bodies, mulling over things that won’t live past today. Do not be anxious about your life. Matthew 6:25

We are worried and anxious about our looks; we are worried about our relationships, anxious about our jobs, academics, family. Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Philippians 4:6

We are bothered about so many things, and by that we neglect and miss out on the one and only thing, the good part. The word which is Jesus Christ.

Jesus Christ is that good part

Jesus is telling you and I today just like He told Martha, that the one and only thing necessary for us, the good part, that which is to our advantage which will not be taken away from us;

That good part is the word, which is Jesus Christ. He’s asking us to choose Him, to sit at His feet and hear the word of life. That word which is able to transform us is Jesus! Sickness, poverty, failure, stagnation bow at the mention of that name; Jesus.

In our relationship, health, jobs, academics, family, Jesus is what we need. Jesus is the answer and solution to our needs. Jesus is the good part, that which is to our advantage which will not be taken away from us.

One thing I have asked of the Lord, and that I will seek: That I may dwell in the house of the Lord in His presence all the days of my life, To gaze upon the beauty, the delightful loveliness and majestic grandeur of the Lord And to meditate in His temple.
PSALM 27:4 AMP


Beloved choose the good part and experience life to the fullest.


Have a marvelous Sunday! and a fruitful week ahead.

Exemplary Christian lifestyle

A typical way of life of an individual or group of people who follow Christ. A style of living that reflects Christ-like attitudes and values.

When he found him, he brought him back to Antioch. Both of them stayed there with the church for a full year, teaching large crowds of people. It was at Antioch that the believers were first called Christians. Acts 11:26

I used this verse specifically because of the last sentence and if you read through the preceding verses down to the end of chapter 11 you’d find out that the reason they were called Christian was because of the way Barnabas and his friends lived preaching Christ with the help of the Holy spirit and how they went about helping one another.

This means that the unbelievers must have been observing their attitude and dispositions all toward one another as well as their general life style all along.

In our world today, people want to see what we are preaching in us, they don’t just want to hear but also want to see because we are the epistle that they are reading.

Winning souls must be by exemplary lifestyle through the way we behave and relate with people be it in the office, business place, school, on the street or at home and even in our churches will determine how successful we will be.

People around us wants to see Jesus Christ in our attitude, our relationship with our fellow humans, they should be able to see Him in our speech and how we treat people, they should see Jesus in our dressing, the places we go to, the things we care about and even in the way and what we eat must reflect Jesus Christ.

38. You have heard the law that says the punishment must match the injury: ‘An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth.

39. But I say, do not resist an evil person! If someone slaps you on the right cheek, offer the other cheek also.

42. Give to those who ask, and don’t turn away from those who want to borrow.

43. You have heard the law that says, ‘Love your neighbor’ and hate your enemy.

44. But I say, love your enemies! Pray for those who persecute you!

Matthew 5:38-39,42-44

According to Papberry in her post: The Ripple Effects of A Kind Act said;

Sometimes it’s not about asking people do something, our very way of life, how we relate to people, how we treat people will speak better than thousands of words would ever do.

An Act of kindness speaks volumes that 1000’s words could ever express.

Jesus’s act of kindness spoke to Zacchaeus’ heart and convicted Him, Jesus did not preach condemnation to this man, even though He knew what he had done, but He also knew his heart and at that moment, that heart sought to see Jesus.

Jesus showed Love and that love caused Zacchaeus to do the right thing.

We must be united in love as we share Christ with the world and cheer each other on, not worrying about who is getting credit.

Our names don’t matter. In the end, knees will only bow down to one name: Jesus.

Finally, the way we treat and relate with our fellow Christians and other people will go a long way in determining the success or failure of our Christian race.


If you were accused as a Christian and placed in front of a jury, would there be enough EVIDENCE to CONVICT you?


Take care and know that love and blessings are here for you.
