The Moral Fool
Having and Applying Wisdom

Hometown Jesus


We place limits on the work of Jesus among us, but when you look at the last line of the scripture below, you see that those are not limits on his outreach.

He will find belief and He will enter an arena of reception because people are "buying" what He is offering. Our streets are filled with people waiting to see and hear an authentic representation of Jesus, His Kingdom call, and His love.

The question is whether our home-town churches will be willing to embrace Him and get in His program or if He will have to look and work elsewhere.

" He went away from there and came to his hometown, and his disciples followed him. And on the Sabbath he began to teach in the synagogue, and many who heard him were astonished, saying, “Where did this man get these things? What is the wisdom given to him? How are such mighty works done by his hands? Is not this the carpenter, the son of Mary and brother of James and Joses and Judas and Simon? And are not his sisters here with us?” And they took offense at him. And Jesus said to them, “A prophet is not without honor, except in his hometown and among his relatives and in his own household.” And he could do no mighty work there, except that he laid his hands on a few sick people and healed them. And he marveled because of their unbelief. "
"And he went about among the villages teaching."
(Mark 6:1-6 ESV)
