55 And coming to his own country he taught them in their synagogue, so that they were astonished, and said, “Where did this man get this wisdom and these mighty works? 55 Is not this the carpenter’s son? Is not his mother called Mary? And are not his brothers James and Joseph and Simon and Judas? 56 And are not all his sisters with us? Where then did this man get all this?” 57 And they took offense at him. But Jesus said to them, “A prophet is not without honor except in his own country and in his own house.” 58 And he did not do many mighty works there, because of their unbelief.
Every human being is related to each other. Jesus in His earthly life was no exception. He was a son of somebody, a brother of some others and a friend, possibly more than a friend of some others.Then what made Him different? It was the realization of His own SELF identity as the Son of God. People who really saw this SELF was able to witness His marvellous deeds. As disciples of Jesus who yearn for a transforming experience, we should really be able to see this Jesus-SELF. This will allow Jesus to perform His mighty deeds amongst us. This JESUS-SELF which passes through us will, then, enable us to be real Christ- givers who will radiate His Love through our actions.
