Worship, the one needful thing

In Luke 10:38-42, jesus visited two sisters. Their brother lazarus was not around. As Martha ran around trying to prepare something for Him to eat, Mary her sister was quietly sitting at His feet adoring, praising and Worshipping the Lord. martha thought physical food was more valuable to the Lord, so she pursued food. But mary knew worship was more important to the Masters, so she pursued worship. If Martha had not complained, they would not have resolved both ideologies. Expecting her sister to join in preparing food for the Lord, Martha went to make a report to Jesus.

She got a shocker! From Jesus’ reply, being a worshipper is of greater value to God than being hospitable. Hospitability without adequate worship is non-beneficial to the one offering it. Being a worshipper is a life-time decision: it is a choice. God expects worship from true believers throughout their life time. Martha would have immediately dumped all she was preparing and gone to the feet of the Lord to be a partaker of the only needful thing. God prefers your worship to your bufft. How faithful are you in worshipping Him?

Worship: do you have to always be in Church to worship? No. You can go about your daily duties at home or at work and still maintain a worshipping spirit. It could be a song that you are singing unto the Lord quietly in your heart. You could even be praying and worshipping God for His greatness while you work or play. A worshipping spirit is one that is constantly connected to Heaven, one of thanks and adoration; readily listening for the “next word” from the throne of Grace.

As I said earlier, to be a worshipper is a choice. Throughout the whole Bible, those who truly worshipped God had divine visitations. If you want a divine visitation, worship God. You have to make a conscious decision to spend your 24-hours of everyday worshipping God. And when you worship God, He listens, He moves and acts on your behalf. You are in for a better life through quality worship. Worship is the needful thing.
