Tell Me More, Tell Me More

“Call to me and I will answer you, and will tell you great and hidden things that you have not known.” – Jeremiah 33:3, ESV


Have you ever experienced the feeling of sitting on the edge of your seat waiting for the person you’re in conversation with to give you all the details?

It’s a feeling of, this person can’t speak fast enough, especially when they like to give every detail and then some.

You’re sitting there thinking to yourself, “will you hurry up”. “Tell me more, tell me more”. Get to the point. (You might be feeling that now.)

So allow me to tell you more.

In 1978, the musical, Grease made an impact in the entertainment world. “Summer Nights,” a song performed in the musical, followed in the musical’s path in popularity. The more its audience heard the lyrics sung, the more popular the music became.

As the two main characters, Sandy and Denny, played by Olivia Newton-John and John Travolta, separately tell their listening audience the details of their date. Every once in a while, you can hear someone say, “Tell me more, tell me more”.

Imagine information being so good that you can’t wait to hear what will be said next.

Our conversations with the Father should be just like that.

God’s thoughts are higher than our thoughts (Isaiah 55:9), so every intimate encounter with Him should be beyond what we could imagine.

The revelation, wisdom, and knowledge should be so good that it causes us to sit in His presence, begging that He tell us more.

“Father, tell me more about the plans you have for me.”

“Father, tell me more about Your truths.”

“Father, tell me more about how I can worship you better.”

With each word, we’re left hanging upon the next.

Mary, Martha’s sister, postured herself in a Tell Me More position.

The scriptures say, “As Jesus and the disciples continued on their journey, they came to a village where a woman welcomed Jesus into her home. Her name was Martha, and she had a sister named Mary. Mary sat down attentively before the Master, absorbing every revelation he shared.” (Luke 10:38 – 39, TPT)

“Mary sat down attentively before the Master, absorbing every revelation he shared.”

Wow! Did you catch that? Let me break it down so that you can take it in, here a little and there a little. (Isaiah 28:10)

“Mary sat down attentively – before the Master – absorbingevery revelation – he shared.”

As a matter of fact, every time we see Mary in the scriptures, she’s sitting at the feet of Jesus. (John 11:32, 12:3) Through Mary, we see a godly example of a learner in submission to a teacher.

At the end of Luke, the tenth chapter, Jesus replies to Martha, “There is only one thing worth being concerned about. Mary has discovered it, and it will not be taken away from her.” (v. 42) The words we receive sitting at the feet of Jesus are life that can never be taken away from us. Because in the same manner that we go from glory to glory, we also grow from Spirit to spirit.

So as we seek to be sons and daughters after God’s own heart, let’s position ourselves in a manner where we’ll want to hear more and more — sitting at the feet of Jesus.
