LESSONS FROM LAZARUS: Faulty theology
John 11:24 “Martha saith unto him, I know that he shall rise again in the resurrection at the last day.”
John 11:25 “Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live:”
Martha in her characteristic self kept talking and stylishly blaming Jesus for her brother’s death. But then it was obvious she was simply an ignorant woman.
You would recall that there was an occasion when Jesus was teaching in their house and this conversation took place:
Luke 10:40 “But Martha was cumbered about much serving, and came to him, and said, Lord, dost thou not care that my sister hath left me to serve alone? bid her therefore that she help me.”
Luke 10:41 “And Jesus answered and said unto her, Martha, Martha, thou art careful and troubled about many things:”
Luke 10:42 “But one thing is needful: and Mary hath chosen that good part, which shall not be taken away from her.”
Jesus was teaching in this encounter and Martha was busy in the kitchen, while Mary sat at Jesus’ feet listening and learning from the Master. She accused Jesus of not allowing her sister to help her in the kitchen, but Jesus set the record straight.
Jesus seems to be telling her here that, “Man shall not live by bread alone!”. Mary listened attentively to understand doctrine.
On the day of challenge, Martha’s kitchen ability could not rescue her, but rather showed her shallow knowledge of Christ. I remember my spiritual father once said, “Martha just heard from the kitchen the word resurrection and life without knowing what they really mean”.
She got her theology wrong and she displayed it in our focal scripture.
Friend, think about it, could it be that the challenges of your life are there because of a wrong theology? Many people’s problem is simply poor knowledge of Jesus!
The challenge here is that if your theology is wrong, your results will always be wrong!
