Matthew and Mark both record about the time Jesus returned to His home town and did some serious teaching in the synagogue (see Matthew 13:54-58 and Mark 6:1-6). The people were amazed. They asked:
Where did this man get this wisdom and these miraculous powers? Matt. 13:54
Where did this man get these things? What’s this wisdom that has been given Him, that He even does miracles? Mark 6:2
Scripture states that the people were amazed at His wisdom and power. Jesus was amazed at their lack of faith.
This makes me wonder if Christians today are doing anything that grabs the world’s attention. Part of our responsibility is to do and say things that point people to God–to glorify [elevate] Him so people are aware of Him (see Romans 15:5-6). They may not agree. But at least they’ll be aware.
What are you doing that piques people’s curiosity?
