Many (if not most) modern Christians have a “pop-up Jesus”… we “pop him up” on Sunday morning, or maybe while we're listening to Christian radio.
But when the chips are down (sickness, relationship trouble, financial problems), we often turn to more “practical” answers, like medical science, Dr. Phil, and good financial books. None of that is bad. But if we put our faith in those things, we're sunk.
We need to pursue, and be preoccupied, with “the One Thing” for all Christians.
If you are a Christian, there is only one thing you need. And we should be obsessed with that One Thing.
Now it happened as they went that He entered a certain village; and a certain woman named Martha welcomed Him into her house. And she had a sister called Mary, who also sat at Jesus’ feet and heard His word. But Martha was distracted with much serving, and she approached Him and said, “Lord, do You not care that my sister has left me to serve alone? Therefore tell her to help me.”
And Jesus answered and said to her, “Martha, Martha, you are worried and troubled about many things. But one thing is needed, and Mary has chosen that good part, which will not be taken away from her.”
Whenever you find yourself worried about “many things”, remember the One Thing that is needful. Jesus.
