MARY AND MARTHA SERMON OUTLINES

by Jeff Strite

A mother and her young daughter had been driving on the highway for a couple of hours and traffic had been difficult... in fact, some of the other drivers had been downright frustrating. They wouldn't use their turn signals, she'd been cut off, tail gated, and then there had been the cars in front of her who insisted on moving way below the...

I think I see the Man of Sorrows as He is traversing the highroad attended by His few friends and disciples. Where will He refresh Himself when the time is come to cease from toil and take food? Where is His house? Surely the great prophet has some place wherein to rest? Alas! He has none! ''Foxes have holes, and the birds of the air have nests; but the Son of Man hath not where to lay his head.'' However, what...

How many of you are facing a problem today? How many of you would say that it would take a miracle to solve your problem? Well, I have some wonderful news to tell you today: there is no problem that is greater than the Lord Jesus Christ! Now I can hear somebody say, ''Ernest, you don't know how big my problem is.'' Perhaps not, but...

People Jesus Met two miles from Jerusalem on the eastern slope of the Mount of Olives, there was a little village called Bethany. It was a little bedroom community, a suburb of the city of Jerusalem. It was to the little village of Bethany that the Lord Jesus came. John 11 tells us that there was in that little village a family that was very special to Jesus. It was the family of Mary and Martha and their brother, Lazarus. It was a...

Now a man named Lazarus was sick. He was from Bethany, the village of Mary and her sister Martha. 2 (This Mary, whose brother Lazarus now lay sick, was the same one who poured perfume on the Lord and wiped his feet with her hair.) 3 So the sisters sent word to Jesus, ''Lord, the one you love is sick.'' When he heard this, Jesus said...

Our story involves a ''certain woman'' named Martha that lived in a ''certain village.'' She had a sister named Mary. They were sisters that were quite different in personality and temperament. Yet it is these differences that the Holy Spirit has preserved in the Bible to teach us one of the most important lessons of the Christian life. As we slip into the home we find Martha upset with her...

Well, when you were in school, do you remember ''pop tests''? Are you ready for this? All right. Get ready. First question, please, we'll put it on the board. What I want you to do is either make a mental note or use a pencil or pen. Check the ones that apply to you. All right, are you ready? Just check the ones that apply to you; just make a mark or mental note. There're going to be twenty...

One of our biggest problems is that a lot of times we don't really know what the target is. We don't know what we're shooting for in life. One of my favorite cartoon strips is Charlie Brown. I love Charles Schultz's creation, and he had such great wisdom in what he shared. There is one in particular I really liked and that was where Charlie Brown is learning archery and Lucy comes up...

Two boys were studying the definitions of certain words and they were having a hard time distinguishing between irritation, aggravation and frustration. It was getting on past midnight and on one of the fellows had just not been able to comprehend the difference. And so his friend said, ''I'm going to give you a demonstration of the difference.'' He picked up the telephone book, picked out a number at...

Now, I want you to take God's Word, and I want you to open it. Please, to the Gospel of Mark, the 14th chapter. Today we're going to be thinking on ''Our Best for Jesus. Mark, the 14th Chapter and we begin in Verse 3: a marvelous episode in the life of our Lord. It's so important that it was recorded by all four Gospel writers. Mark 14:3 ''And being in Bethany...

Over the centuries, the church has struggled between looking to Scripture for guidance in its theology and practice and looking to the traditions and cultures in which it has lived. Often as not, we are blinded by the influence of culture and fail to even ask the right questions of the very Scriptures we read. We often miss the point of one text of another...

by Charles H. Spurgeon

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. And she had a sister called Mary, which also sat at Jesus' feet, and heard his word. But Martha was cumbered about much serving, and came to him, and said, Lord, dost thou not care that my...

It has often been claimed that comparisons are odious, and therefore it might be dangerous to compare homes mentioned in the New Testament. Houses are as different in design as people are in temperament. Nevertheless, it is probable that of all the dwellings in Palestine, Jesus preferred most the one owned by...

by Charles H. Spurgeon

And Mary said, My soul doth magnify the Lord, and my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Savior. Mary's Magnificat was a song of faith. You have thought, perhaps, that you could easily have sung this song if you had been as highly favored as she was; but are you sure that you could have done so? Have you ever realized the...

by Tony Nester

Had you been near the tomb of Jesus on the first Easter morning one of the sounds you could have heard was the sound of a woman crying. Her name was Mary Magdalene - and she was wrenched by sorrow. She was crying the cry of grief. Jesus, her Lord, had died the previous Friday afternoon. He had died in shame and...
