Notes to the Lord:Home With Uncommon Grace

Scripture Reflections: Matthew 13
53When Jesus had finished these parables, he moved on from there. 54Coming to his hometown, he began teaching the people in their synagogue, and they were amazed. "Where did this man get this wisdom and these miraculous powers?" they asked.
Lord Jesus--Here in the middle of people being healed and teaching that had heaven just barely covered in parables, the people who knew you best missed the point. " Where did this person who grew up right under our feet get this wisdom and power?" In the middle of the mundane and the usual you break through into our world.

"Isn't this the carpenter's son? Isn't his mother's name Mary, and aren't his brothers James, Joseph, Simon and Judas? 56Aren't all his sisters with us? Where then did this man get all these things?" 57And they took offense at him.

Lord Jesus--It was the in Hometown Galilee with family scattered all around that the thought of Your being someone that could change their lives rattled the world of these people. They had known you before you were on the national stage. I wonder what the feelings were in their hearts...was it frustration with their own lives? Was there the need to make their own not leaving home alright?

But Jesus said to them, "Only in his hometown and in his own house is a prophet without honor."

58And he did not do many miracles there because of their lack of faith.

Bottom lined and personal...

These people from your childhood on planet Earth limited the agent of creation by their lack of faith...they refused to see the Majestic among the mundane. Lord Jesus where are the places where I am missing the Majestic in the middle of the mundane? Where am I limiting Your work by my lack of faith in your ability to work? Right where I am in the middle of a mundane the middle of a normal week on a same corner that I have been at long enough to call home, you want to work majestically and with uncommon grace.

Lord Jesus work as you see fit here in this place I call home.
