Sermon Notes: Mother's Day 2023

Mother's Day 2023

Pastor Logan Almore

“The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few…”

-Luke 10:2

“Go and do likewise.”

-Luke 10:37

As Jesus and his disciples were on their way, he came to a village where a woman named Martha opened her home to him.

-Luke 10:38

She had a sister called Mary, who sat at the Lord’s feet listening to what he said.

-Luke 10:39

But Martha was distracted by all the preparations that had to be made.

-Luke 10:40

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 10:40

“Martha, Martha,” the Lord answered, “you are worried and upset about many things, but few things are needed—or indeed only one. Mary has chosen what is better, and it will not be taken away from her.”

-Luke 10:41-42

Before we can minister to others, we must first minister to ourselves.

“Now Jesus loved Martha and her sister and Lazarus. So when he heard that Lazarus was sick, he stayed where he was two more days…”

-John 11:5-6

When Martha heard that Jesus was coming, she went out to meet him, but Mary stayed at home. “Lord,” Martha said to Jesus, “if you had been here, my brother would not have died. But I KNOW that even now God will give you whatever you ask.”

-John 11:20-22

When Mary heard this, she got up quickly and went to him.

-John 11:29

When Mary reached the place where Jesus was and saw him, she fell at his feet and said, “Lord, if you had been here, my brother would not have died.”

-John 11:32

Jesus wept.

-John 11:35

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.

-John 12:1-2

Martha served, while Lazarus was among those reclining at the table with him.

-John 12:2

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 12:3

One of his disciples, Judas Iscariot, who was later to betray him, objected, “Why wasn’t this perfume sold and the money given to the poor? It was worth a year’s wages.” He did not say this because he cared about the poor but because he was a thief; as keeper of the money bag, he used to help himself to what was put into it.

-John 12:4-6

“Leave her alone,” Jesus replied. “It was intended that she should save this perfume for the day of my burial. You will always have the poor among you, but you will not always have me.”

-John 12:7-8

She did what she could. She poured perfume on my body beforehand to prepare for my burial. Truly I tell you, wherever the gospel is preached throughout the world, what she has done will also be told, in memory of her.

-Mark 14:8-9

She had a sister called Mary, who sat at the Lord’s feet listening to what he said.

-Luke 10:39

When Mary reached the place where Jesus was and saw him, she fell at his feet

-John 11:32

“…she poured it on Jesus’ feet…”

-John 12:3

Don’t ever get so familiar with the presence of Jesus, that you forget to be present at His feet.

Mary soaked at Jesus’ feet.

Mary grieved at Jesus’ feet.

Mary worshipped at Jesus’ feet.

At the feet of Jesus, we:

1. Listen

2. Learn

3. Linger

When we adjust our posture, He adjusts our priorities.

What’s keeping you from listening, learning, and lingering at the feet of Jesus?
