Luke 10:40-42 Scripture Meditation by Stephen Taylor

Luke 10:1

After this, the Lord appointed seventy-two others and sent them two by two ahead of Him to every town and place where He was about to go.


The Lord used regular people to prepare the hearts and minds of those He was about to go to, and He is still doing this today! How beautiful it is that the Lord allows us to partner with Him in His ministry. That He trusts us even though He knows everything about us. He knows every secret, every hurt, and every sin, yet because of Who He is and how He changes us, He lets us take the message of freedom, the greatest gift ever given to the world to those around us!


The question then becomes, are we moving? Are we going? Are we sharing it the way He would share it if He were walking the planet today? One of the things I pray often is, “Holy Spirit, teach me the Word, train me in it and show me how to share it the way you want it to be shared.” I don’t want to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ or the Word of God the way I think it should be shared but rather the way He knows it needs to be shared – in a way that honors and glorifies Him, edifies His people, and shines the brightest of lights in this dark, dark world.


There is so much power in surrendering and doing it His way (in all things), but today, I want to focus on sharing the Word the way He intended it to be shared. Remember that the disciples were just ordinary people with an extraordinary God. The power wasn’t in themselves but in the One who called them family!


Luke 8:20,21 - Someone told him, “Your mother and brothers are standing outside, wanting to see you.” He replied, “My mother and brothers are those who hear God’s Word and put it into practice.”


God bless! I love you all, but He loves you more! Glory, honor, and praise now and forever to Papa God, Jesus Christ our Redeemer, and the Holy Spirit who leads us into all truth!


Luke 10:40-42

But Martha was distracted with much serving. And she went up to him and said, “Lord, do you not care that my sister has left me to serve alone? Tell her then to help me.”


But the Lord answered her, “Martha, Martha, you are anxious and troubled about many things, but one thing is necessary. Mary has chosen the good portion, which will not be taken away from her.” 


We have an enemy out there, and if he can’t destroy you, he will try to distract you! I constantly find myself distracted with Facebook or minor inconveniences in my life, and that’s when I really need to try to focus on God and see what the enemy is trying to keep me from, because I believe the bigger the assignment from God, the harder the attack from the enemy will be.


If we take our attention away from Jesus, then he has already succeeded in slowing us down!! He doesn’t need to concern himself with distracting us, because we have done it for him! I have to stay focused on God and what He wants me to do, not my will but His will! If we stay diligent in the Word, attentive to the Spirit, and stay focused on Jesus, then there will be less room for that other junk to distract us!!


We are in a battle for souls, and our enemy doesn’t care what team we play for as long as we’re not playing too hard against him! So, let’s get past the distractions and start delivering for Christ!!!


I love you all. God bless, and Glory to God!!!!
