Hometown crowds are tough to please…

6:04 Mark “Jesus said to them, "A prophet is not without honor except in his own town, among his relatives and in his own home."” (NIV)

Jesus returns to His hometown and begins to preach in the synagogue. People wondered where He got such deep insights and understandings. Afterall, He was the son of Mary and Joseph… a brother to other siblings… a carpenter… a person of humble beginnings. They found it hard to believe that He could do so well and be more than they could comprehend. Don’t let that stop you. Share the Good News. Show them what Jesus can do in you.

Stop being so afraid…have faith!

4:40 Mark “He said to them, “Why are you so afraid? Have you still no faith?”” (ESV)

The disciples had seen Jesus perform many miracles. Yet, when it came to their needs… their situation… their dependence on Him, their faith was small. We often forget the power of God and His great love for us. We think we are alone. We think we can handle it. We only think of ourselves. That can change… now! Trust in Him fully for all your needs. Cast on Him ALL your cares. Let Him work in and through you… then release all your fears. Live a fear-less life!
