Attentive Discipleship

Attentive Discipleship

Let us take every word of Jesus, weigh it, read it, mark it learn it, feed on it and inwardly digest it.

 I am afraid we do not read our Bibles as we should, or attach such importance as we ought to every shade of expression which our Master uses.

 I should like to see a picture of Mary sitting at the Master’s feet. 

Great artists have painted the Virgin Mary so often that they might take a change, and sketch this Mary looking up with a deep, fixed gaze, drinking all in, and treasuring all up; sometimes startled by a new thought and a fresh doctrine, and then inquiringly waiting till her face beams with unspeakable delight as new light goods her heart. 

Her attentive discipleship proved how truly Jesus was her Master.

From a sermon by Charles Haddon Spurgeon entitled "The Master." delivered.

Reflection and inspiration 
from the "Prince of Preachers," 
Charles Haddon Spurgeon.
