Hindering Jesus

“And He did not do many mighty works there, because of their unbelief.” Matthew 13:58 ESV

This verse is the concluding verse of the account of Jesus’ visit to His home town of Nazareth. Can you imagine growing up in the same town as Jesus.  Maybe even a neighbor or playmate.  Do you think Jesus made a point of going back home so He could bless them and meet their needs?  But they didn’t believe who He was, they only saw Him as the carpenter’s son.  They took offense at him (Matt 13:57).  They missed a tremendous blessing because of their attitude and unbelief!

Today, we need to stop and examine our lives to see what we may be missing because of our unbelief.  Do we see Jesus for who He really is or do we see Him as some well known person who lived in the past who did some good things?  Unless we believe that Jesus is who He says He is, He can not do what He desires to do in our lives. What blessings we are missing because of our unbelief!  We hinder Jesus when we do not believe and that unbelief may cause us to miss the very best blessings He wants to give us.  The forgiveness of our sins and Heaven as our home when it is our time to leave this earth!!  An Everlasting Word!!!!!!
