While reading in the Gospel of Mark this morning I came across the account where Jesus was teaching in his home area and couldn’t do any powerful miracles because of the people’s unbelief. The scripture says he was “amazed” at their unbelief. I’m amazed too! This is Jesus we’re talking about, God on this earth. He healed thousands of people, but he could only heal a few in his hometown because they knew him and his family personally. It made me ask myself, is there a danger here? Jesus wants to be in relationship with us; he calls us his friends. But I think we should not ever take this special relationship for granted and forget who he is. He is our God and King. When we pray, let’s have no doubts, but believe and pray in absolute faith. Our Savior is always able and ready to hear from us.
