Msg: On Your Mark, Get Set, Go! - Week 6

Sometimes the all too familiar blends in and we don’t see it anymore. We think we know what’s already there and don’t really notice anymore. The same thing happens with people. We sometimes keep thinking in terms of their past and not who they have become.
In today’s message, we look at the contrast between the familiar and unfamiliar. Jesus goes back to his hometown. The people are amazed, yet don’t want to believe in Him because they think they know about his past. After this, we see the story of Jesus sending out the disciples in pairs to share the Good News and call people to repent and turn back to God. When they get back, they are excited to share the news with Jesus, but tired. Jesus then teaches them of His unlimited resources and power with two examples of overcoming the impossible.
What about you? Have you ever felt like God gave you some task that seemed impossible for you to do? Our problem usually comes from looking at our limited resources and abilities in trying to solve the task. But God is unlimited. The disciples learned that day and night how to put their faith in action. It’s now our turn. On your Mark, get set, Go!
