“Then they scoffed, “He’s just a carpenter, the son of Mary and the brother of James, Joseph, Judas, and Simon. And his sisters live right here among us.” They were deeply offended and refused to believe in him.”
Mark 6:3 NLT
Just a carpenter?
Just a carpenter healed the sick, fed thousands with little, opened blind eyes, raised a few dead folks. On one occasion, just to show us the greatness of God, he made sure the person (Lazarus) was not only dead but also buried and beginning to rot!
Just a carpenter made the lame walk, opened eyes that had never seen, forgave many and removed soul-crippling guilt, released many from problems that has plagued them for years, sometimes decades. Try being bent over for 18 years, or sick for 38 years.
Just a carpenter bore our sins, took our punishment, made us whole.
Just a carpenter reunited us with our Father and gave us back our place at heavens tables.
Just a carpenter did all that and much more.
Surely he was more than just a carpenter.
Imagine what God could do through you today. Then just let Him.
