Nazareth Or Cana?
And he did not many mighty works there because of their unbelief.
Here we have the Person (“He”), the Place (“there”), and the People (“their”). Jesus, the Person, was in Nazareth, the Place. It could have been a place of blessing but for the People. “Where”-there is the place-“two or three are gathered in my name”-there are the People-“there am I in the midst of them”-there is the Person.
If revival does not come to your church, it will be because of the unbelief of the people. We can limit the Holy One of Israel. We can grieve and quench the Holy Spirit.
Jesus had a better reception in Cana. Whatsoever He said, they did it, and water became wine. The ruler of the feast did not understand, but the servants who drew the water knew. God’s secrets are hid from the wise and prudent but revealed unto babes. Christ works His miracle when humble servants fill the waterpots with water. Faith and obedience change the mediocre to the miraculous.
Do you live in Nazareth or Cana?
