Through Jesus Christ, God wants to know every person he created, in a personal relationship. It’s as simple as that! You’ve heard this before. You’ve read it before.
This Friday we’ll take a look at three siblings in the Bible. They all had a personal relationship with Jesus. They spent time with Jesus. They knew he was the Son of God. They had faith in him. We know them simply as Lazarus, Martha, and Mary.
Sometimes we can be like Martha. Sometimes we can be like Mary.
What can we take away from their story and Jesus’ powerful words to each of them?
There is life-changing application here!
I look forward to seeing you early. Doors open at 6:30am and we get started at 7:00am.

This Week’s Key Verses
Now Bethany was less than two miles from Jerusalem, and many Jews had come to Martha and Mary to comfort them in the loss of their brother. When Martha heard that Jesus was coming, she went out to meet him, but Mary stayed at home.
Six days before the Passover, Jesus came to Bethany, where Lazarus lived, whom Jesus had raised from the dead. Here a dinner was given in Jesus’ honor. Martha served, while Lazarus was among those reclining at the table with him. Then Mary took about a pint of pure nard, an expensive perfume; she poured it on Jesus’ feet and wiped his feet with her hair. And the house was filled with the fragrance of the perfume. John 12:1-3
She had a sister called Mary, who sat at the Lord’s feet listening to what he said. But Martha was distracted by all the preparations that had to be made. She came to him and asked, “Lord, don’t you care that my sister has left me to do the work by myself? Tell her to help me!” Luke 10:39-40
Be still and know that I am God. Psalm 46:10a
