16 When he came to Nazareth, where he had been brought up,
he went to the synagogue on the Sabbath day, as was his custom. He stood up to read,
17 and the scroll of the prophet Isaiah was given to him.
He unrolled the scroll and found the place where it was written:
18 “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me,
because he has anointed me to bring good news to the poor.
He has sent me to proclaim release to the captives and recovery of sight to the blind,
to let the oppressed go free,
19 to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor.”
20 And he rolled up the scroll, gave it back to the attendant, and sat down.
The eyes of all in the synagogue were fixed on him.
21 Then he began to say to them, “Today this scripture has been fulfilled in your hearing.”
22 All spoke well of him and were amazed at the gracious words that came from his mouth.
They said, “Is not this Joseph’s son?”
23 He said to them, “Doubtless you will quote to me this proverb, “Doctor, cure yourself!’
And you will say, “Do here also in your hometown the things that we have heard you did at Capernaum.’ ”
24 And he said, “Truly I tell you, no prophet is accepted in the prophet’s hometown.”
There are those people in your life that will find your spiritual transformation disingenuous.
Do not be deterred! Over time, their lack of faith in the Gospel may be healed by the changes they see in you!
