Read Matthew 13.53-58
And He did not do many miracles there because of their unbelief. (Matthew 13.58)
SOMETIMES SEEING IS NOT BELIEVING
He was leaning precariously over the edge of the rock but not quite past the point of no return. He was frozen with fear on the 60-foot cliff and he could go no further. I reminded him that the rope held him securely and he had seen others rappel down the rock wall several times. In the end, his faith failed. Simply seeing did not lead to believing. Just like the people of Nazareth. Jesus’ hometown folk had seen and heard the wonders of their prized son. And yet they could not get beyond the arrogance of familiarity or the pride seniority. Jesus’ powers were limited by unbelief.
Are you limiting the power of Jesus by the trumping power of disbelief?
