THE MOST IMPORTANT LESSON EVER
Don't Skim Over This
Everything Jesus ever did was to draw people to His Father. Miracles weren't simply to relieve pain in someone's flesh, but to reveal Who He was and cause the healed man to turn to God. (Example: the Ten Lepers, Luke 17:12-19) What could be more important than Knowing Him? That's why Jesus told Martha, a woman very distracted with her worldly cares, "Only One Thing is important." (Luke 10:42)
The "One Thing" then, is for Him to show us His Glory, His beauty, or in New Testament language, "Reveal Himself to us." (John 14:21) If we will seek the One Thing, He will take care of everything else. However, it requires trust in Him to not ask for the hundreds of things that demand our attention, and instead, JUST SEEK GOD. But...If we will, it highly pleases Him and draws His favor.
Jesus said That's the way to live.
"Seek first His kingdom and His righteousness,
and all these things will be added to you."
So did David,
"One thing I have asked from the Lord, that I shall seek: That I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life,To behold the beauty of the Lord
And to meditate in His temple.
5 For in the day of trouble He will conceal me in His tabernacle; In the secret place of His tent He will hide me; He will lift me up on a rock."
It made Solomon the richest & wisest man ever.
(I Kings 3)
HERE IS THE GOLDEN TRUTH
If we asked for 10 things and the Lord gave us all of them, we might be thankful, but also could easily carry on with our routine life and not be changed. For those 10 things were the Priority, not HIM.
However, if we ask only for Jesus to Reveal Himself and
His Glory, and then He takes care of what concerns us,
we can't help but realize that the Lord has just Revealed
Himself in Every One of Them!
