This is our B moment. Our moment to be still…to be fed by the Word of God…to be grateful.
Scripture reference: Psalm 145:3 (ESV)
Today I am thinking about the need to replug into my source, who is Christ.
As the Lent season is upon us, typically we talk about giving up something. Specifically, I’ve talked about giving up negative behaviors, such as worry and anxiety, which can create distance between you and God. Yet sometimes, rewiring our minds not to worry about something can be easier said than done. Yet it is at this time I know I need to replug into my source, who is Christ.
In fact, this is exactly what Mary did. Shortly after Jesus raised Lazarus from the dead, Mary and Martha threw a huge celebration dinner for Jesus. During the party, Martha spent her time running around, worrying about whether or not everything was perfect for Jesus.
Meanwhile, Mary was found at Jesus’ feet, breathing in, listening to, and soaking up every word that came out of his mouth. Mary knew the importance of plugging into her source, who was Christ.
Eventually, Martha complained to Jesus, asking him whether it seemed fair that Mary spent her time sitting while Martha spent her time trying to perfect things. However, Jesus told Martha that there was only one thing worth being concerned about and that was something that Mary had already discovered.
Let us begin to lay the groundwork for a good Lent season today by remembering these few words: “Great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised.” Psalm 145:3 (ESV)
Please share this reflection as others desire to be inspired.
So today, replug and renew.
