“They Took Offense…”

Blessings folk!

After healing Jairus’ daughter Jesus departs…

Mar 6:1-3

Jesus went out from there and came into His hometown; and His disciples followed Him.

When the Sabbath came, He began to teach in the synagogue;
and the many listeners were astonished, saying, “Where did this man get these things, and what is this wisdom given to Him, and such miracles as these performed by His hands?

“Is not this the carpenter, the son of Mary, and brother of James and Joses and Judas and Simon? Are not His sisters here with us?” And they took offense at Him.

Jesus went to His hometown accompanied by His disciples.

On the Sabbath, as was His habit, Jesus went to the synagogue.
He taught.

The people were astounded.
They knew Jesus.
They knew He was not “educated” in the traditional way of man.
They knew His family.
Some of His family was still with them.

Yet, they wondered at His wisdom.
They wondered as to where He “got these things”.
They wondered at the miracles that He performed by His hands.

They acknowledged all this.
The great things.
The wisdom.
The miracles.

Their reaction to Him?

They took offense!

The same is today.
We have a choice.
Either we receive and rejoice in faith and belief.
Or, we take offense at Him

We can not “pick and choose”.
We receive all.
Or, we reject all.

Where are you?
