Mark 6:5-He could not do any miracles there, except that He laid hands on a few sick people and healed them. 6 And He was amazed of their unbelief.
Unbelief- the withholding of belief; disbelief of divine revelation; disbelief of the truth of the Gospel, rejection of Christ as the Savior of men, and of the doctrines He taught; distrust of God's promises and faithfulness.
In this text on today, Jesus dealt with unbelief among those who had walked with Him and talked with Him, those who had seen Him perform one miracle after another and yet still choose to live in unbelief as the truth of God's Word stood before them daily.
What those in the synagogue that day did not realized is the fact that they missed the greatest opportunity ever to be blessed by Jesus.
Jesus is speaking the same “WORDS” to the wounded and brokenhearted in the world today that He spoke 2k years ago to those in the synagogue today.
The response from Jesus to the unbelief of the people then and now in the world today is "AMAZEMENT." He is amazed at the depth of the people's unbelief.
Psalm 147:3- He heals the broken in heart, and binds up their wounds.
Man can continue to do all the good works he wants to in the earth, but apart from Christ and faith in Him and His Gospel, your labor is in vain for works and good deeds will not get us to heaven.
Scripture declares that without faith it is impossible to please God!
What miracles are you missing out on today that you desperately stand in need of and is unable to receive because of your unbelief? What is it?
Is your heart hardened against the Gospel of Jesus Christ? Are you still blaming God for what is wrong in your life? Have you even sat down and think for a moment that it may be "UNBELIEF" that is causing you all your problems?
1 John 1:9- If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
You can be healed and made whole right now through faith in Christ Jesus if you would only believe for scripture declares that all things are possible to them that believe.
Thank God that you did not die last night in your state of unbelief, but that God showed you mercy by keeping you alive and giving you another opportunity to get it right with Him on today.
