    The summary of Luke 10 ,is making heaven.
  • Tonguino Alexis for verse 42
    "There is only one thing needed"...This was Jesus' response to Martha.That one thing needed is saving one's soul,in other words Salvation.Also,continually feeding the soul with its desired food,which is the word...The word of God. Now,why didn't Mary join Martha for the preparations? It's clear in verse 39,which says "Her sister,Mary,sat at the Lord's feet,listening to what He taught.This tells us that,Mary was more concerned about saving her soul and knowing the word of God,rather than running after worldly pleasures to satisfy the flesh,which stands for the preparations the bible talks about.Beloved,I encourage you to embrace the freely given salvation the Lord has brought to us.
