There is a Kingdom that has always been, and will always be. It is found in the heart of Jehovah God who has no beginning or end. He lives in eternity, and rules over all that exist. Before time began, before you were born, God had an eternal purpose for your life. The only way to find and fulfill this eternal purpose is through a relationship with The Eternal King, Jesus Christ. This blog is about The Eternal King and His Kingdom. It is about how you can be part of His Kingdom by having a relationship with Him, and fulfilling His eternal purpose for you.
In the Bible
Martha was a busy person. She was a
doer, an organizer, a fixer, a planner and loved helping people in every way
she could. (Luke 10:38-42) In fact from the way you look at the
scriptures her first priority was to do her best for everyone else. In “The Message” Bible it says, “As they
continued their travel, Jesus entered a village. A woman by the name of Martha welcomed Him
and made Him feel quite at home.” It is not
often in the Bible you read of a welcoming such as this.
In John 11,
when Martha heard that Jesus was coming after Lazarus died, she went out to
meet him alone. She wanted to share with
him what was on her heart. She told Jesus that if He had been there her brother
would not have died. (Her faith was so
strong that she knew Jesus would have never let that happen.) Then she let her faith rise up in her again
and she declared, “I know that whatever You ask God, He will give You.” Wow, what a statement. She was so full of faith. And then Jesus raised Lazarus from the
dead. I like this verse in John 11:5, “Now Jesus
loved Martha and her sister…….”. He
knew the faith of Martha. It doesn’t
mean He loved her more. You never know,
but perhaps the faith of Martha was one of the reasons that Jesus raised
Lazarus from the dead.
If someone has jokingly called you a “Martha,
Martha” now you can look at them straight in the eye, grin real big, jump up
and down if you feel like it, and thank them profusely. They will wonder what in the world you are
doing. Then you can tell them about the
