Week 1 of When All Hell Breaks Loose
I have told you all this so that you may have peace in me. Here on earth, you will have many trials and sorrows. But take heart, because I have overcome the world.
This series is a reflection on how we can thrive in the times that Earth feels like hell. There are times that this world will look like Heaven, and there are times that it will look like hell. Christians have the incredible opportunity of being a part of God’s plan to bring Heaven to earth.
Here from Wes Smith as he talks about when Jesus visits Martha and Mary.
38 As Jesus and the disciples continued on their way to Jerusalem, they came to a certain village where a woman named Martha welcomed him into her home. 39 Her sister, Mary, sat at the Lord’s feet, listening to what he taught. 40 But Martha was distracted by the big dinner she was preparing. She came to Jesus and said, “Lord, doesn’t it seem unfair to you that my sister just sits here while I do all the work? Tell her to come and help me.”
41 But the Lord said to her, “My dear Martha, you are worried and upset over all these details! 42 There is only one thing worth being concerned about. Mary has discovered it, and it will not be taken away from her.”
