Follow Jesus                            Mark 6:1-6

Familiarity

Jesus returns to His hometown.  He does not receive the homecoming one would expect.  The people in His hometown are wondering where He obtained His wisdom and the power to do miracles.  They say, “This is just Jesus, just the son of a carpenter, just Mary’s son, this is just Jesus.”
 
Their familiarity make them resistant to Jesus.  The result is Jesus’ power is limited.
 
As is said, “Familiarity breeds contempt.”  For us unbelief is not our problem.  We too may be so familiar with Jesus, so comfortable with Jesus, our discipleship is commonplace and mundane.  Familiarity has diminished any passion.
 
When our discipleship is mundane, Jesus is limited to do anything new, anything extraordinary.
