Dailies in His Word
February 6, 2019

An interesting thing about Jesus and preaching in his home town was that He had grown up there as a fairly normal person. Well, there was that time when he went to be counted that one year. We read about him as about 12 years old preaching to the people in the temple.
He did mention to his parents Mary and Joseph that they should have expected him to be about his Father’s business. But that was not in Nazareth. In Nazareth Jesus was just Jesus Mary’s son. He was the son of a carpenter, not a wise scholar, but a tradesman who had a skill like his dad, Joseph did.  It would be like you or I walking into our home town and people not knowing how we became a Bible Scholar and us telling them all the wise words we knew. ( Matthew 13:53-56)
So they were offended at Him.
But Jesus said to them, “A prophet is not without honor except in his own country and in his own house.”  Now He did not do many mighty works there because of their unbelief. Matthew 13:57-58 
I thank God that He sees us as we are according to His plan. If we seem to have a learning issue in grade school it won’t necessarily keep us from writing a blog about Jesus and what He has done for us. Nor will it stop us from preaching and teaching the Word of God that God has enlightened us with the knowledge and skill to do so. Thankfully God has a plan for each of us and we too much be about our Father’s business!
Heavenly Father, thank you for using us even if it’s in a way we could not have learned on our own, but by Your Spirit we can do all things. In Jesus’ name, amen.
