Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional!
But Jesus said to them, “A prophet is not without honor except in his own town and in his own home.”
Jesus had been wildly successful everywhere He’d ministered until he returned to his own hometown. Once there, people in his community of Nazareth were shocked to hear Him preach and teach in the synagogue. They said, “Isn’t this the carpenter’s son?” As if to say, “It’s impossible that he is succeeding, he’s one of us!” At which point Jesus said, “The only place a prophet is rejected is in his own hometown.” Because of it, the people of Nazareth missed out on “Signs And Wonders Even Jesus Couldn’t Do.”
Faith is the KEY ingredient to miracles of any description. “Without faith, it is impossible to please God,” the scripture says. What happened in Jesus’ hometown was not a lack of faith; it was NO faith at all. They weren’t willing to even suggest, maybe, that God was working miracles through the hometown boy. Instead, the scripture says they became offended by Jesus. Kind of a “Who does he think he is” attitude. There is only one thing you need when it comes to your relationship with Jesus. FAITH! When you believe Jesus and what He has promised you, you are now in a position to activate His miracle-working power in your life. If we don’t have faith, then you and I will miss out on “Signs And Wonders Even Jesus Couldn’t Do.”
Help me keep my FAITH strong today. I’m not willing to miss out on miracles and signs and wonders that you want to do in my life because of my lack of faith! Lord, I believe. Help my unbelief! Amen
