Mark 6

Mark 6:5-6 “And he could there do no mighty work, save that he laid his hands upon a few sick folk, and healed them. And he marveled because of their unbelief. And he went round about the villages, teaching.”

“He could there do no mighty work” The lack of honor and faith hindered Jesus from being able to do a truly great and mighty work in Nazareth. Unfortunately the same could be said of allot of churches and to many Christians I’m afraid.

“And he marveled because of their unbelief.”

Nazareth was Jesus hometown it wasn’t like they had never seen or heard of Jesus before; they knew what he could do yet they were still skeptical of him. They knew in their heads just how mighty and powerful Jesus was, but that still didn’t believe. I wonder if God can’t do a work in our lives sometimes because of our unbelief.
