Mark 6:1-6

Jesus was limited by their unbelief.  Surely God can do great deeds without the belief of humankind as an ingredient in the mix!  Surely so.  But it appears as if God has chosen to include the faith of disciples as an ingredient in the mix.  Why?  We don’t exactly know.

For some reason, God wanted to include disciples in God’s mission of redemption and transformation.  Prayer is a primary tool of this work.

Perhaps we can hold God back when we think small or skeptically about what can happen.  Our unbelief, along with our belief, is part of the mix.  Since that is so, our trust and faith actually influence the success of God’s mission.  How do you feel about that?

Prayer Thought:  Consider what you believe God cannot do in you and in your church.  Consider surrendering this belief to God.
