“Now it came to pass, as they went, that he entered into a certain village: and a certain woman named Martha received him into her house. And she had a sister called Mary, which also sat at Jesus’ feet. And heard his word” (Luke 10:38-39).

The Baptist Bible lowered no gums to you under the direction of Elder Lucero Bradley Junior, pastor of the Cincinnati primitive Baptist Church will will and this is Mr. Bradley Junior inviting you to stay tuned for another message of God's sovereign grace and and will be, and he will and he he will and will and he will be and will will and and in all she said she will and will and he will be will be in all will will will will be in all will and will and all he will will will very thankful that we have the opportunity of broadcasting over a number of stations on Sunday in Cherbourg during the week and also having the program on several websites apart from a number of people who've told me that the program is been a special blessing during these times, because some are involved where churches have not been able to meet regularly so we're grateful that God is using the proclamation of the truth of his word to be a blessing during these difficult days.

If you can help us with the support of the program will shortly be grateful for it. This is a five Sunday month and so the need is particularly great. Our address is the Baptist Bible Auerbach 17 oh 37, Cincinnati, OH 45217, or you can go to our and make a donation. There we continue now with the second part of the message sitting at the feet of Jesus.

What better place could we occupied during these difficult days and to be at Jesus feet with patient when Jesus brought peace in the midst of the store. The gospel of Mark chapter 4 verse 37 says that there arose a great storm of wind and the waves beat into the ship so that it was now full of things to be on a ship in the time of storm wind is blowing waves are lashing against the ship and it's being tossed about when the water begins to come over and let's say we are in dire circumstances, surely we will soon be destroy and he was in the hundred part of the ship, asleep on the pillow and I like him and send him master Harris now. Not that we perish, and you may have said that in the midst of some of your troubles will you promise to leave me but I'm not able to sense your presence. Do you not care for you not and he arose and we knew we see these stale ceased was a great call verse 41 they said to one another, what manner of man is this, that even though we can see only that must've been witness now. The fact is, even with Jesus asleep.

They were in danger with Jesus on the ship it was not noticing and the fact is this Jesus bless them to ride out the storm. It was his pleasure here to bring the storm to an end, but the lesson we need to learn is that yes he is able.

He's able to speak his word and calm when the problem bring them to a quick conclusion.

Fact is, also, if you continue ship to be tossed about in the store with Jesus on he's going to see you for Jesus gives us peace today in the storms we encounter Jesus feet.

We learned to obey, John 14, the 15th verse Jesus says if ye love me, keep my commandments. Mary was sitting at Jesus feet. She no doubt wanted to learn it says she was attentive to his word and it wasn't just that she might gain knowledge in her mind she wanted to be like God for her life. As we read the word I was looking at is that which would take a course of action revealed to us how we should think, what are you two should be what activities will involve. If you love me, keep my coming saying all kinds of beautiful songs about you can tell others, Jesus. You can even go to the Lord himself and say keep his commands. Luke 646 and five called the main Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say he's a lot easier saving your love him, but you just do not think that he says you may at times vowed to do it but you sooner.

Off course, you may sometimes say this is difficult. I can't. I can't follow brain centers today when I find in Scripture something they don't like to say well, that was for another time.

It doesn't even call me Lord, Lord, do not the things which I say obedience to Jesus is not loyalty to a denominational name. It's not love for tradition submitting to the teacher sitting at his feet, hearing his word and obeying it whatever Jesus says whatever doctrine he teaches.

That's what I want to embrace whatever he says to wait. I want to wait where he says no I want to know he's the teacher he's in charge.

I want to sit and learn. Jesus. Furthermore, at the feet of Jesus, you become like him. 640, the disciple is not above his master but everyone that is perfect shall be as his master, the disciple is the student the master is the teacher.

Jesus is the teacher and student. Everyone that is perfect.

Everyone that is complete.

Everyone learns the lesson learned shall be like the teacher, so it's not just a matter I did my homework I got it down on paper.

I make some notes. I know what I'll believe it's not just having some head knowledge about certain doctrines and creeds. It means if you are truly being taught you become like teacher like the mess of acts chapter 4 we find beautiful example of some who were pointed out as being like Jesus to the temple and there was a lame man there begging alms expected as people came by that they would assist him in the been there for many years and all he never received. Of course, was alms to keep going, but he could not walk. He was lame leader comes along once in silver and gold have I none but such as I have give the in the name of Jesus Christ. This man walked and was running up and down the street leaping and shouting and praising God. Those who oppose this miracle in the proclamation of the gospel and the labor of these Christians would like to have denied that it happened several Lexus rumored in the street praising God, leaping a check dictates close that is a living testimony when chapter 4 verse nine the book of acts it says if we this day be examined of the good deed done to this man, by what means he is made whole know all the people of Israel but by the name of Jesus Christ will be crucified. Reason for that is that thing back I will bring you people know he made it clear they committed a great crime they need to repent. This Jesus of masses along that you crucified but he is now raised from the dead, even by him this man stand here before you whole because of what Jesus Christ, the crucified, but the resurrected Savior has done it because of him that this man is now last able to walk. This is the stone which was set at naught of you builders, which is become the head of the caller, saying you rejected the stone you Jews who did not receive him and acknowledge him as the Messiah.

You reject anybody made the hand of the caller.

Neither is there any neither is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men whereby we must be as the gospel message. No other nation. There is no other name given under heaven whereby you must be safe for not believing Jesus leave it on the sun ever lasting life you believe is not is condemned already, because he did not believe in the name of the only begotten son, the name of Jesus when they saw the boldness of Peter and John and perceive that they were man. Now they were they were man of deep spiritual insight. This simply meant they had been educated in their schools. They were approved by the leaders and so in their book, they are ignorant and unlearned man.

They marveled and took knowledge and then they had been with what had to say something special about them.

They could talk all day long about them being unlearned but they said they had been with Jesus person should serve your daily life, would they conclude you have been with Jesus what they say hi truly believe that person is been sitting at the feet of Jesus.

If they listen to your conversations, the words you use, the tone of your voice attitude when you speak to other people when they say you have been with Jesus when they see compassion in your life you have a harsh, critical attitude, you look down on those that are fallen down Trenton to Princeton. The Levite passed quickly by you have the spirit of the Samaritan says I want to help I will minister this person puts down what they see love for others, like the love that Jesus has for you that we consider the tremendous importance of this experience that Mary had an experience in all of us can have if we will sit at Jesus feet.

Marquis disturbances in the kitchen. She worked hard. She wants to prepare an impressive meal for Jesus wants you can says my sister has all the work and asked Jesus to send her back Jesus's Martha troubled and careful about many things, but but but one thing is Mary. Mary hath chosen that good part of the essay say Mary hath chosen the better part is not what the text.

Jesus said, she has chosen the good part part is to sit at Jesus feet and hear his words.

Yes, there is work to be done with the Scripture does not condone laziness, suggesting that everything has to start with sitting at Jesus feet so easy to become full of care Martha loss to be troubled about many things that I think you begin to roll over and around the finger troubled about to get up in the morning the first thing you think about is all the things you need to stop. Sit down Jesus's word. Pray that he will speak to us that he will instruct us that he will teach us love that he would teach us to have compassion that will be more like the master apostles had a flipping chapter 3 verse 13 brethren, count not myself to have apprehended, but this one thing I do this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forth of those things which are before I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus. One thing I'm going to do I'm going to press the mark. I'm not going with the things that pass all that's such a struggle for many people always looking back.

The think about the mistakes they made the failures along the way they struggle over.

You can't change that worrying about the past doesn't think Tori doesn't think anything as a matter fact were you see and worry means you're not trusting the process that I want to forget those things are behind can't change them anyway.

I will be moving following. I'm really pressing toward the mark for the part of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus. This one thing.

That's what Jesus had said to Martha Martha was willing to set her house in order for the Lord. Mary was willing to set aside the maybe a lot of things you say I'm willing to do activities in which you want to be involved, but you could be so busy even with activities that in themselves are good. You have neglected the greatest thing you failed Jesus.

Jesus at that part shall not be taken away. When you read the word you receive it you have a treasure was taken away. Colossians chapter 3 verse 16 says let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom, the language literally means the word of Christ be at home in you. You're so full of Scripture that you going to think biblically, a crisis arises and started giving way to the weakness of the flash you going to think about what you plan to think about the words of Jesus, you got a treasure in your heart when you are comfortable with, like when the trial comes the difficult to present itself that you got explored totally new territory as though your loss and want to know you have the word of God hidden in your the attractions of the world.

The pleasures that the world offers are soon gone, but sitting at Jesus feet brings blessings and joys that cannot be taken away and I say to you who have never come to sit Jesus I pray you come today said but I'm sure that's the kind of people. Jesus came to say repeatedly throughout the gospel record see him speaking words of forgiveness to those who they were centers to come to Jesus as the center and text is Evan. I don't have the experience the kind of experience I have heard other people talk about. Not everybody is going to have the kind of experience that Saul of Tarsus had when he heard the voice of Jesus, and he was struck down the road to Damascus, but maybe your experience is like that of Lithia. The Lord opened her heart so that she is to the things that were spoken with Paul. Has the Lord made your heart tender as he opened your heart you know. Yes, center deserve nothing. No one meet Marcy out knowing the grace but this week told that the gospel are a blessing of comfort to you.

Your heart, Jesus is come commonly all labor are heavenly. And I will give you rest.

Sitting at the feet of Jesus is a blessed place to be.

Can you say that's where you are today. I'm sitting at the feet of Jesus hymn writer expresses it like this, sitting at the feet of Jesus watching, waiting every day, trusting in his grace and power safe to keep me all the way listening at the feet of Jesus's command to go or stay trusting always in his wisdom safe to guide me when I obey seeking still at the feet of Jesus. I would seek no other place for 'tis there claim the promise of the fullness of his grace. When the phone line for over when my race on earth is run by the evening shadows gathering find me there were days sitting at the feet of Jesus while love to kneel and pray to his goodness and his glory drive the shadows from my way sitting at the feet of Jesus, you will all and if indeed I'm talking to someone today who is been convicted of sin. The first time in your life you come to realize I need salvation.

Things are not right between the good news of the gospel is there is hope for center. That's the kind of people. Jesus came to say this is him but come with me I will in no wise cast out. He is indeed the Savior of sinners.

As a result of his sacrificial hope that you will like the sun until next week. At the same time with the Lord richly bless you will all be about to come to you under the direction of Bradley Junior Cincinnati Baptist Bible Lord Cincinnati, OH 45217 Baptist Bible Lord Cincinnati, OH 45217
