"And he could do no mighty work there, except that he laid his hands on a few sick people and healed them. And he marveled because of their unbelief." -- Mark 6:5-6
The great Bible scholar G. Campbell Morgan grew up in a Christian home and never questioned that the Bible was the Word of God. But in college, his faith was severely challenged by the philosophies of the day, and he began to entertain doubts. After a steady exposure to skepticism and unbelief, he wrote, "There came a moment when I was sure of nothing.”
The time had come for the very presence of the Lord of creation to be in their midst. The One who, in surrounding communities healed the sick, restored sight to the blind and raised the dead. Yet, neighbors and friends could only ask questions of doubt, failing to look beyond the surface to see the supernatural. The Lord could do no mighty works because the people were filled with the "impossibilities" of unbelief.
Unbelief cripples the soul and hinders the mighty work of God. The Lord responds to unbelief and belief. Where there is doubt there is bondage. Where there is faith there is freedom. What is your "Faith Quotient" today my friend? Jesus said in Mark 9:23, "All things are possible for one who believes". Is your life marked by the "impossibilities" of unbelief or the "possibilities" of faith?
