“Nazareth! Can anything good come from there? “Nathanael asked,” Come and see, said Phillip.John 1:46
They were referring to Jesus Christ, the son of God. They couldn’t believe that something good could come from a place as Nazareth. It could have been due to the the fact that Nazareth was an inferior place. It was not superior. Nazareth was a very small community, with probably less than 500 people during Jesus’ lifetime. Being so small, and not close to major cities, it was the last place one would expect anything interesting to happen. A place that Nathanael could hardly think that any sort of good thing, even any worldly good thing, could come from there. He thought no good man could arise from there; and still less, any prophet, any person of great significance ; and still least of all, that the Messiah, should spring from there.
But there He was, Jesus Christ performing all wonders, doing great things that were never imagined of emanating from Nazareth . His background did not limit him.
Are you feeling discouraged because of your background? Where you are coming from?Have you lost confidence? Remember God can use you to execute great things in life . Do not look down upon yourself because of where you are coming from. God has a great plan for your life.
