Coming to his hometown, he began teaching the people in their synagogue, and they were amazed. “Where did this man get this wisdom and these miraculous powers?” they asked. “Isn’t this the carpenter’s son? Isn’t his mother’s name Mary, and aren’t his brothers James, Joseph, Simon and Judas? Matthew 13:54-55
When Jesus returned to his hometown of Nazareth during his ministry, the reaction was not what you would expect. Instead of people being joyful that the Messiah was from there hometown they began to question his legitimacy. Because they knew Jesus there entire lives they believed there is no way Jesus could be the Messiah, he just the carpenters Son
How you ever experienced this in your own life? Nobody how much you accomplished or how much you changed your life for the better your always going to have haters. There going to say “I knew this person growing up, they could never change” or “ I know where you come from , I know your family, you could never amount to anything”
And they took offense at him. But Jesus said to them, “A prophet is not without honor except in his own town and in his own home.” Matthew 13:57
Imagine how Jesus felt, these people he grew up around all his life, including his family mostly rejected him. The people he thought he could count on the most were the ones who doubted him the most.
Are there people in your life doubting you today? Or maybe your doubting someone in your life? Remember God works in mysterious ways, his ways our higher than our ways. God took a poor carpenter Son and saved the world with him. Don’t let peoples doubt stop your from your diving destiny.
And he did not do many miracles there because of their lack of faith. Matthew 13:58
Notice there lack of faith prevented Jesus from performing miracles. Imagine if they just had the faith the size of a mustard seed, how many miracles Jesus could have performed for them. But there doubt prevents the power of God from activating.
This is the same with our life, do you ever say “I don’t see any miracles” question is how much faith do you have? Is your lack of faith preventing Jesus from working in your life today? Remember with man it’s impossible but with God all things are possible in Jesus Name Amen
