Sermon on Wednesday night was about the story of Mary and Martha (Luke 10). Pastor mentioned that many American Christians are afraid these days. What if our church is taken from us? What if persecution or martyrdom comes to our country as it has come to other nations? What if the Church has to hide? Will we still have God's word in a decade, or even just a few years?
Jesus' promise to Mary and Martha was that Mary had chosen to listen to God's word and "that will not be taken away from her." This is a promise to us too, who cherish God's word and beg that we not lose His word and Spirit. How will the Lord preserve His word and ensure that it is not taken from us? We don't know. But the promise remains true.
