Living at the feet of Jesus (James Smith, Luke 10)

Posted by tom | Sep 28, 2012

Another in the series of words of encouragement passed along by a faculty friend and ministry mentor.

Living at the feet of Jesus (James Smith, Luke 10)

"And she had a sister called Mary, who sat at the Lord's feet and listened to His teaching."

"But one thing is needed, and Mary has chosen that good part" (Luke 10:39, 42).

Let not the many trifles of time affect, distract, and bewilder you; but let the one thing needful be the constant object of pursuit and desire.

Live at the feet of Jesus -- and you are safe.

Seek, above all things, to enjoy Jesus -- and you will be happy.

Aim in all things to glorify Jesus -- and you will be holy.

Look daily for the coming of Jesus -- and you will be consistent.

Seek to  . . .
  know Him,
  love Him,
  believe Him,
  obey Him, and
  enjoy Him!

O Jesus! manifest Yourself to me; draw me to Your feet, and keep me there!

May it be so as I wrap up several days at the InterVarsity Faculty Ministry Team mtgs at Columbus, OH, and return home to a weekend focused on family and our local assembly.
