Jesus is our gift, the greatest blessing to achieve. Repentance lets us grow in Him, but pride drifts us away from him. This world says that restrictions are a hostage; they will keep you from enjoying life. But obedience to the Lord is the key to true joy and peace.

In Luke 10:41-42 we see the difference between Mary and Martha. Mary had seen the truth about Jesus; she had found joy in obedience to the Lord and was a woman after God’s heart. Unlikely to Martha, who was always attached to the world’s standard, she had not yet found freedom nor joy in the Lord. Martha was always worried about the worldly things; she never surrendered herself to God wholeheartedly.

But only one thing is necessary, for Mary has chosen the good part, which shall not be taken away from her. - Luke 10:42 

So often we get busy in trying to achieve temporary things. But are we really women after God’s own heart? Are we ready to still love Jesus despite everything we go through? Obedience is not bondage but an opportunity to embrace His holiness and encounter His grace.

Are we ready to give up our selfish desires for Jesus?
