The people of his hometown said, “Isn’t he the carpenter, the son of Mary, and aren’t his brothers and sisters still with us?” Now we surely wouldn’t do it that way, but we can in another way.

We can limit Jesus by looking at the things we are most familiar with and not believe He can do any mighty works among them. We can limit Jesus by the way we see others we are familiar with, and the way we see our church, and the way we see ourselves that in a way that we can’t conceive that God can use us to do any mighty works. How often do we say, ”We are just a small country church”? We think that is being humble, but it is actually saying Jesus is not powerful enough to do any great works among us. We can limit Jesus by the way we see ourselves. We can fail to allow Jesus to do any mighty works in and through us because we just don’t believe he could ever use us or we could never do it. We must ask ourselves. What can Jesus do in and through us?

What can Jesus do in our churches, in our district, and through our United Methodist Mississippi Conference? Let us not be Blinded by The Familiarity of: we’ve never done it that way, the economy is low in our state, we just don’t have people with that kind of talent. We must remember, if we have Jesus in our hearts we have what it takes!

In order for us to do mighty works and not drift away into oblivion, we must not be blinded by the familiarity of past failures,
