But because of God’s great love for me, God, who is rich in mercy, made Me alive with Christ even when I was dead in transgressions –it is by grace I have been saved. Ephesians 2:4-5 Personified You must learn to see yourself in the Scriptures, it will build up your faith.
Today’s Declaration I am being built together to become a dwelling in which God lives by His Spirit. Ephesians 2:22. You also can declare thus and believe. It is so! Hallelujah!
Therefore, heaven and earth has come together to build YOU up as Gods temple which will never be defiled by sin, sickness, or infirmity
For through him we both have access to the Father by one Spirit. Ephesians 2:18. You and I have access to God! Take advantage of this!
He came and preached peace to you who were far away and peace to those who were near. Ephesians. 2:17.Jesus want you and I to have peace. Trust Him!
A prophet is not without honor except in his own town, among his relatives and in his own home – Mark 6:4
“Familiarity breeds contempt”. “The Cambridge dictionary explains it this way, that “if you know someone very well you stop respecting them because you have seen all of their bad qualities“
This is what causes frictions in relationship. Jesus Christ experienced it in His home town. The people that knew him intimately, that have lived with him could not recognize the power at work in him. They could not benefit from it either.
Therefore, what you are experiencing is not strange to you. Your closest relationship, and those that know you casually may not see your worth as a being. Your genuineness, love, and virtues, may not be appreciated.
You speak wisdom and truth, speaks justice, peace, fairness, kindness, give wise counsel, and it is overlooked or ignored. It is a natural phenomenon summed up in “Familiarity breeds contempt”
I want you to know:
The unbelief of Jesus’s hometown does not negate or reduce the effect of His grace, love, and power to work wonders in the lives of many others of His days. Mark 6:13
