S. O. A. P.
Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional!
For if the miracles that were performed in you had been performed in Sodom, it would have remained to this day.
Jesus said that Sodom would have been spared if it had seen the miracles the Lord had performed in Capernaum. In fact, Capernaum had witnessed more miracles than any other city Jesus had traveled to: the demoniac in the synagogue that Jesus delivered in Mark 1, the man sick of the palsy in Matthew 9, Peter’s mother-in-law in Matthew 8, Jairus’ daughter and the woman with the “issue of blood” in Matthew 9, and the centurion’s servant in Matthew 8. And I could go on. There were even more miracles that occurred. All of them happened in Capernaum.
When you read this passage you kind of think, “Poor Sodom.” I mean Jesus, who is God, said, “If Sodom had seen the miracles that Capernaum had seen it would have been spared.” Why? Because Jesus was saying Sodom would have turned from its wicked ways. But now, here was Capernaum, a city that had seen so much of the miracle-working power of God that the miracles of Christ had become “Ho Hum.” Here’s the point I want to make. “Stay Amazed” by Jesus. Whatever you have to do at any age of life to Stay Amazed, then Stay Amazed. We must never allow ourselves to become bored by the miraculous. Instead, when it comes to the miracle-working power of Jesus we must, Stay Amazed.
I will always Stay Amazed by Your miracle-working power! I promise! Amen
