Jesus Marveled !

Scripture Lesson: Mark 6:1-6; Matthew 8:5-13

The scripture lessons you were supposed to read record two separate instances where Jesus marveled.  Another word could be that Jesus was amazed! Have you ever wondered what you could do to make Jesus marvel?  Perhaps what you did not do made Jesus marvel. 

The first incident was when Jesus was amazed at their unbelief.  Their unbelief actually limited his effectiveness.  The Bible says “he could do no mighty works their because of it.”  He was limited to healing a few sick folk.

These people thought they “knew him” but they did not really “Know” him.  They knew his name and earthly family. They observed him growing up from a small child however they had no knowledge of His divine assignment.  They could not bring themselves to accept him as their Messiah, Deliverer, Redeemer.  As a result they limited the Lord of glory!  Their human knowledge got in the way of their faith.

The second example is one involving a gentile.  This man understood the power of authority and applied that to Jesus, for he recognized in him the presence of power.  He chose to submit himself to that authority to obtain what he needed most.  He did not claim to understand completely but he understood enough to receive what he needed.

Jesus comment to the crowd gathered around him was “13 Then Jesus said to the centurion, “Go your way; and as you have believed, so let it be done for you.” And his servant was healed that same hour.”

Please read both accounts and study them thoroughly, for you will find how Jesus responded to each one.  Place yourself in the position of the centurion and receive what you need from the Master.

PRAYER:  Lord Jesus, I humbly come before you and cast my care upon you.  I believe you are the Son of God.  I believe you rose from the dead and are now seated at the right hand of the Most High.  It matters not what my mind understands, it matters completely on what my inner heart believes!  Thank you Lord for confirming Your Word in my life with signs and wonders!  Amen!
