Marys Who Loved Him
"Do you know how much He loves your love?
Do you know how much He wants your love?"
Who are the Marys who loved Him?
In the final analysis, your life will rise or fall on this issue: who did you choose to love and who did you love the most? That is the only issue. The Marys in scripture stand for loving Christ—and their love surpassed that of even the disciples, before Pentecost.
“Mary found favor with God. How do you find favor with God? By being good? By not losing your temper? No, I think you find favor with God when you love Him. He looks for love. Mary said, ‘Behold…the bondslave of the Lord’ (Luke 1:38).
“Someone said to me, ‘Oh, God has shown me I am not His bondslave.’ She said, ‘I want Him to go where I go. I don’t want to go where He wants to go. I am not a bondslave.’
“You see, a bondslave is one who says, ‘Anything, Lord. Anything You say, Lord. Be it done to me according to Thy word.’ Well, we know the end of Mary’s story. It is all glory.
“Let me tell you something. You can’t say when, you can’t say who, you can’t say how much, and you can’t say how. You can only say, ‘Yes, Lord.’ All other decisions are His.’
In Marys Who Loved Him, Martha looks intimately into the lives of three Marys: the mother of Jesus, Mary Magdalene, and Mary of Bethany. These women understood that faith involves loving a Person—not a doctrine, and not a ministry to man.
“You will be a dividing line in the world, in every place you walk. The power you possess to influence the world lies in your adoration of Christ.”
