Jesus Marveled at Them

What surprised Jesus…

5 And he could do no mighty work there, except that he laid his hands on a few sick people and healed them. 6 And he marveled because of their unbelief.

-Mark 6:5-6

Jesus was surprised by the unbelief of those who knew Him, the people from His home town, those who knew Him best and had grown comfortable with Him. What about you… are you too comfortable with Jesus? Have you known Him for a long time? Be careful you don’t get so comfortable with Him that you become complacent. Our lack of faith can hinder what God wants to do among us, and that’s astounding because it doesn’t take a lot of faith for God to move mountains. Believe, no matter how long you think you’ve waited for Him to do something, the faith of a mustard seed can turn this world upside down. Go to church and get a “recharge” from your brothers and sisters… your faith is important!
