Discussion for Mark 6

  • Rev. LaDonna for verse 11
    When you are passing through a place whether you have been there or not before and the light of God and his truth was upon you and the people did not hear you... let this be your testimony that your were not received. Did they relate to you when you were among them in the past, present, or future? Then you need to not return or share the ground that they tread on because they are not right with the Lord. Pray for such as these because they did not heed nor do they want to because they are self-centered and will be subjected to judgement of the "Most High!"
  • Bob corrigan for verse 11
    When the Jews traveled back to Israel from lands they considered pagan. they would shake off the dust of the pagan lands as it was considered unholy and rejected by God. So, when Jesus commanded to shake the dust off the feet when a village or city rejected the disciples, it was a statement that God would reject and condemn that village or city. In Acts 13:49-51, we see Paul and Barnabas, "shaking the dust off their feet" toward the Jews stirring up trouble.

    Avsje Lazarus believed in his lifetime, therefore Jesus accepted his faith and rose him from the dead. The demon-possessed man would have believed if he were not in his situation, as evidenced by his request to be a disciple. It's different when a person has faith and is just incapacitated - Jesus honors that. It's unbelief that makes him not want to perform miracles. The conditions aren't right. Of course, he could, but he has a requirement and will not extend his grace to those who do not deserve it.
  • Jesus did not do mighty miracles because of their lack of faith in Him. He raised Lazarus from the dead when no one had faith, neither did Lazarus because he was dead. Jesus casted out demons when the man had no faith, for the demon had taken over and was in full control. There was always a reason why Jesus did what he did. Of course, Jesus has the power to heal the world, but while in his home town, he marveled at their unbelief. For by faith are we made whole. So, does our lack of faith prevent Jesus from healing or does it prevent our bodies from being healed?

    The Multitude Amazed, Wondered and followed Jesus because of the Miracle He has Done, Just like us, we only believe God because of the miraculous things He has done in our life, But God wants us to believe and have Faith in him of who He is and what are His capable of. Renew our Mind Believe and have Faith in God not by his work but by Who HE is.
