JOSEPH PRINCE SERMON THE OVERFLOW LIFE FOR YOU : Pastor Joseph Prince tells us about Mary and Martha, he said: Now it happened as they went, that he entered a certain village and a certain woman named Martha welcomed him into a house and she had a sister called Mary who also sat at Jesus feet and heard his word, but Martha was distracted with much serving and she approached him and said Lord, do you not care that my sister has left me to serve alone, therefore tell her to help me and Jesus answered and said to her Martha, Martha you are worried and troubled about many things but one thing is needed, Mary has chosen that good part which will not be taken away from her.
So many times, they’re so familiar with so many of us, that we tend to let the familiarity rob us of the reality, if you believe that one thing is needed, why don’t you do it, do you really believe it, most Christians even then, they know this story, they know what Jesus said but they do not believe it. How do I know that because if really they believe it, they would do it, will do that one thing necessary?
so in our minds, even though we have a Tyrian in the forefront of our brains, in the back of our head, you know in the in depth that subconscious level, the subterranean level our brain what we really believe is that no. we have to get some things done or else you won’t get done I think this is maybe poetic license or whatever. Pastor Joseph Prince said, one thing is needed, I think there’s more than one thing, we don’t believe Jesus but she is telling us how rivers of living water will flow out of us.
Martha was serving but Mary are sitting down listening to Jesus words, you don’t have to worry about service, you don’t have to worry about powerful ministry and all that, it will all happen when rivers of living water flow out of you but what Jesus wants from you, what the Lord wants from you every day and what the Lord wants from us is just to be in his presence. Come to him, not come to a church, not come to an organisation or denomination or whatever, come to him, come to me and drink.
John 7 says, come to me and drink, not even draw pastors and leaders, he’s not even telling us to draw, you can’t you draw water for others and still diopters, you’re not drinking so there are pastors who come to the word to come to Jesus only when they are preparing a message. You can’t do that pastors because there’s no overflow, you’re not preaching from the overflow. To preach from the overflow, you must always be connected to the source which is Jesus and not just reaching out to him to prepare a sermon.
