She had a sister called Mary, who sat at the Lord’s feet listening to what he said. (Luke 10v39 NIV)

Although Martha invited Him in, it was Mary who took full advantage of His Presence.

You can open the door to Him but you also have to sit with Him.

Take the time to listen. 

Mary was absorbing everything He was saying. 

She gave Him her full attention. 

Give Him the main course not just the left overs. 

Don’t let your past success or failure reduce your passion for Him.

How much time are you willing to give to Him?

Ask Him what sitting at His feet looks like for you.

Spend some time (as much as possible) every day just sitting and listening to Him. 

This can be harder than you think. 

Start with 10 minutes (time it if necessary) and then increase it. 

In the holidays or at the weekend set aside a longer period of time. 

Write down everything and anything He says. 

Everything He says has some significance, either now or later.

He loves being with you.
