Podcast: In the Word with Will and Marie Robinson

Work and Worship (ep.8)

Today I discuss work vs. worship. Mary and Martha are often contrasted as though each believer must make a choice: be a worker like Martha or a worshiper like Mary. It seems evident that the Lord wants each of us to imitate Mary in our worship and Martha in our work. Blessed are the balanced!

Few things are as damaging to the Christian life as trying to work for Christ without taking time to commune with Christ. “For without Me ye can do nothing” (John 15:5). Mary chose the better part, the part that could not be taken from her. She knew that she could not live “by bread alone” (Matt. 4:4).


The key is to have the right priorities: Jesus Christ first, then others, then ourselves. It is vitally important that we spend time “at the feet of Jesus” every single day, letting Him share His Word with us. 


The most important part of the Christian life is the part that only God sees.


Luke 10:38 - 42 (NASB)

38Now as they were traveling along, He entered a village; and a woman named Martha welcomed Him into her home. 

39She had a sister called Mary, who was seated at the Lord’s feet, listening to His word. 

40But Martha was distracted with all her preparations; and she came up to Him and said, “Lord, do You not care that my sister has left me to do all the serving alone? Then tell her to help me.” 

41But the Lord answered and said to her, “Martha, Martha, you are worried and bothered about so many things; 

42but only one thing is necessary, for Mary has chosen the good part, which shall not be taken away from her.”

God's Word (ep.7)

Today we discuss the desire to move from people needing God (when in trouble), to choosing God, to, ultimately, loving God!”


John 21:17 (NASB)

17He said* to him the third time, “Simon, son of John, do you love Me?” Peter was grieved because He said to him the third time, “Do you love Me?” And he said to Him, “Lord, You know all things; You know that I love You.” Jesus said* to him, “Tend My sheep.


Matthew 10:28 (NASB)

28“Do not fear those who kill the body but are unable to kill the soul; but rather fear Him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell. 

God's Grace (ep.6)

Today we discuss God’s mercy and grace during our trials and tribulations. He is faithful and will not test us above our ability to be successful. We should not measure ourselves by other Christians, but by the Word of God, because not everyone who grows old, grows up!  The only greatness to which the Christian can ever aspire is that of being the slave of God. Psalms 119:25 (NLT) I lie in the dust; revive me by your word. 


Job 1:21 - 22 (NASB)  

21He said, 

“Naked I came from my mother’s womb, 

And naked I shall return there. 

The LORD gave and the LORD has taken away. 

Blessed be the name of the LORD.” 

22Through all this Job did not sin nor did he blame God. 


James 1:2 - 5 (NASB)  

2Consider it all joy, my brethren, when you encounter various trials,  

3knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance.  

4And let endurance have its perfect result, so that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing. 

5But if any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all generously and without reproach, and it will be given to him.  




God's Purposes (ep.5)

Today we share some pointers on finding and following God’s Will for your everyday life.

The workings of God’s providence are indeed awesome, and this ought to be a great source of encouragement to us in the difficult circumstances of life. “He does as he pleases with the powers of heaven and the peoples of the earth. No one can hold back his hand or say to him: ‘What have you done?’” (Dan. 4:35)

The Lord had His divine purposes to fulfill, and “There is no wisdom or understanding or counsel against the Lord” (Prov. 21:30, nkjv).


Biblical Clarity (ep. 4)

We believe that God's Word is clear and is the final authority on everything.

Hebrews 4:12 - 13 (NASB) 12 For the word of God is living and active and sharper than any two-edged sword, and piercing as far as the division of soul and spirit, of both joints and marrow, and able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart. 13 And there is no creature hidden from His sight, but all things are open and laid bare to the eyes of Him with whom we have to do.
Psalms 119:89 - 91 (NASB) 89 Forever, O LORD, Your word is settled in heaven. 90 Your faithfulness continues throughout all generations; You established the earth, and it stands. 91 They stand this day according to Your ordinances, For all things are Your servants.
