John 12:24 Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abideth alone.

Beginning in 2008 the vision and bible school that God so graciously gave Wade Taylor beginning in 1968 came to an abrupt end, falling into the ground and dying.-

We now wait for God to raise up and bring forth His seed of promise in another, that the vision fail not.

The activity of Martha in contrast to the meditation of Mary in the Scriptures has provoked many to choose one or the other as a pattern for their lives. Yet, these were sisters, related to each other and living in the same household. They are not to be separated. Each has a part to play in our Christian experience. Faith and works go together. Our revelations must find a practical outworking in everyday life or else they are of no real value.

Concerning the birth of Jesus, the Scripture says, “The word was made flesh and dwelt among us.” This is yet true today; our experiences and revelations in the Word must face the test of life. We cannot separate our religion from life. Spiritual gifts must find fulfillment in the fruit of the Spirit. This separation has brought great reproach on true Christianity. Our experience in the Lord and the path of our daily life are one. James expresses this truth. “Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead being alone.” This is the test of a true experience and walk with God.

Martha and Mary belong together, in the same household, each fulfilling their part, at the right time and in the right balance.

Allow the Holy Spirit to take charge of your daily tasks, whether pleasant or not, in the outworking of HIS purposes for our life. Right now—ask Him to bring the right balance between works and revelation in our Christian experience.

This is a mark of maturity.
