6th Sunday after Pentecost (Luke 10:38-42)
Gospel Message from Pastor William.
Mary welcomes Jesus into her home by listening to him. Martha welcomes Jesus into her home by serving him. Both show hospitality, but Martha resents Mary’s method. Therein is the problem with us. We tend to think our way of being church and being a Christian is better than the methods of others. We tend to forget that Christianity is about hospitality to others – all others. Jesus pointed out that “there is need for only one thing” and that thing is being Christ to others; in all we do and say.
