Necessity of Doctrine, part 2…

Got news last night that our Colorado kids will be here this week.  Wednesday, to check out a job in Lawrenceville GA, and then arrive here on Thursday, after the interview.  This is sweet sorrow as there are difficult decisions and sacfifices to make.  My body and brain are mad at me.  Pray that the trip will be comfortable and profitable (Biblically) for all of us.

Only ONE thing is needful:

Luke 10:38-42 Now it came to pass, as they went, that he entered into a certain village: and a certain woman named Martha received him into her house.   39 And she had a sister called Mary, which also sat at Jesus’ feet, and heard his word.   40 But Martha was cumbered about much serving, and came to him, and said, Lord, dost thou not care that my sister hath left me to serve alone? bid her therefore that she help me.   41 And Jesus answered and said unto her, Martha, Martha, thou art careful and troubled about many things:  42But one thing is needful: and Mary hath chosen that good part, which shall not be taken away from her.

Here is a quote that we would do well to consider:

JC Ryle: “It seems so right to provide for our own! It seems so proper to attend to the duties of our station! It is just here that our danger lies. Our families, our business, our daily callings, our household affairs, our intercourse with society, all, all may become snares to our hearts, and may draw us away from God. “One thing is needful.” How true that saying! The longer we live in the world, the more true it will appear. The nearer we come to the grave, the more thoroughly we shall assent to it. Health, and money, and lands, and rank, and honors, and prosperity, are all well in their way. But they cannot be called needful. Without them thousands are happy in this world, and reach glory in the world to come!”
