Mark 6:1-6

Big Idea: So deeply fixed is man’s animosity toward God that nothing short of a work of divine power in a human heart can overcome it and make a person a follower of Jesus Christ.

I. Introduction: Jesus is amazed at the unbelief of the people of His hometown.
II. Background and Context of the Passage: Can anything good come out of Nazareth?
III. The Power of Unbelief
    A. The man of Nazareth is every man; the woman of Nazareth is every woman; the child of Nazareth is every child.
    B. An anti-God principle lies deep in our DNA.
IV. Conclusion/Application: Apart from the grace and the power and the working of God and His Holy Spirit, we too would have remained forever offended by the Lord Jesus.
