///// SUNESIS OF CHRIST /////
Day 330| November 25, 2020 | Apostle Gideon C Boateng
As Jesus and his disciples were on their way, he came to a village where a woman named Martha opened her home to him. She had a sister called Mary, who sat at the Lord’s feet listening to what he said. But Martha was distracted by all the preparations that had to be made. She came to him and asked, "Lord, don’t you care that my sister has left me to do the work by myself? Tell her to help me!" "Martha, Martha," the Lord answered, "you are worried and upset about many things, but few things are needed —or indeed only one. Mary has chosen what is better, and it will not be taken away from her."
St. Luke 10:38-41
One of the commonest errors children of God make in relating with their heavenly Father is to think, their service and labouring for the Lord is foremost to everything in their faith walk. As a result, most ministers and children of God often cumber themselves with so much activities and these programs and projects have often absolved them from spending quality time with the Lord to hear and to learn from Him.
Such was Martha in our opening verse when the Lord visited their home. She was all over the place getting things done for the master and his disciples yet the master was not enthused. Rather, the Sister, Mary who rather forsook all else to hear the master was praised to have found the best of life. The lesson we learn from this episode is that, every serious child of God must embrace fully the idea that, sitting at the feet of the master must precede every activity or program no matter the impact it could possibly bring.
There's nothing as great as ministering to the Lord directly and face to face yet the Lord says taking your place at His feet his more Important. Now this may not go down well with many of us if we want to wrap our head around it but that is the way of the Lord. The Lord himself approached His ministry in that way. Before he took of with the ministry, he spent time alone in fellowship with the Father in the wilderness far from all human disturbances for forty days (Matt 4). There are still records pointing to his routine early money and quiet times alone in fellowship with the Father before going out to minister (Mark 1:35).
The effect of this quality time spent alone with the Father is what we saw in His exceptional 3 years ministry that is still being talked about even today. The Lord himself said, 'As He sees the Father So He does'- John 5:19. Now the question is, how can we be like the Lord in this way, to do all we see the Father execute if we don't go to sit at the master's feet to watch and hear Him.
Stop everything and return to the feet of the master and be very sure all you do is what He has shown you to do.

One thing is needful and I have found it; I sit at the masters feet to learn daily. What I see Him do is what I do.
