Verse: Jesus could not perform very many miracles there, except to lay hands on a few people and heal them. He was amazed at their lack of faith. – Mark 6:5-6
Reflection: That’s not the way we want to amaze Jesus, right?
How often is He wanting to perform miracles in our lives or in our communities, but our lack of faith leaves Him unable to do much, amazed at how little we believe. Would it not be better for us to amaze Him as did the centurion, with his great faith?
God can do a great deal or not very much in our lives, depending on how much faith we put in Him. And it only takes a mustard seed to go a long way.
Faith Challenge: Let’s ask God how we can get out of the way, allow Him to work more freely in our lives, and how He can help our faith grow in the process.
