"And [Jesus] went out from thence, and came into his own country; and his disciples follow him. And when the Sabbath day was come, he began to teach in the synagogue: and many hearing him were astonished, saying, 'From whence hath this man these things? And what wisdom is this which is given unto him, that even such mighty works are wrought by his hands?' ...And they were offended at him" (Mark 6:1-3).

When Jesus was in His own country, the people in the synagogue listened to Him, but they really didn't hear Him. They said, "Where does Jesus get these things? What wisdom is this?" The people were offended, so we know they didn't really hear what Jesus said, nor did they allow the Word to produce faith. They were listening, but in reality they weren't hearing.

Verse 5 says, "And he could there do no mighty work, save that he laid his hands upon a few sick folk, and healed them." Think of it: Jesus of Nazareth - God manifested in the flesh, the One anointed with the Holy Ghost and power, the One infilled with the Holy Spirit without limits - "could there do no mighty work."

The Bible didn't say Jesus wouldn't; it said He couldn't! He couldn't do any mighty work "save that he laid his hands upon a few sick folk." I like the way Brother Hagin translates it; he says Jesus laid his hands "upon a few people with minor ailments."

Jesus went in equipped with signs, wonders and miracles, but only a few people with a cold or the flu were healed. Thank God for the ones who were healed, but that isn't what Jesus went to His own hometown to do.

Make sure you allow Jesus to perform His will in your life. Don't just listen to the Word - hear it with your spiritual ears, and build up your faith to receive. Let Jesus do a mighty work of healing on your behalf!

The power of the Lord Jesus Christ is present to heal me
right now. That power is working in my body to
effect healing as I hear and believe the Word.
