We don’t know who she was. She was on the team. Paul says she was a hard worker for them.
“Greet Mary, who worked very hard for you.” (Romans 16 v 6)
We were created to work, to pour our whole energy and passion into whatever our hand finds to do.
There will be no impact, no fruit and no results without work.
Mary is not commended for her faithful church attendance but for her work for the cause of the Church in Rome. We don’t know what she did. But we can assume she shared in the struggle of what Paul was carrying.
There are plenty of ‘Mary’s’ in the church today. Think of them now. Think of all that they do. The hard work they are engaged in for the sake of others.
We need more people like Mary.
