Matthew 11:20-24

20 Then Jesus began to denounce the towns in which most of his miracles had been performed, because they did not repent. 21 “Woe to you, Chorazin! Woe to you, Bethsaida! For if the miracles that were performed in you had been performed in Tyre and Sidon, they would have repented long ago in sackcloth and ashes. 22 But I tell you, it will be more bearable for Tyre and Sidon on the day of judgment than for you. 23 And you, Capernaum, will you be lifted to the heavens? No, you will go down to Hades.[a] For if the miracles that were performed in you had been performed in Sodom, it would have remained to this day. 24 But I tell you that it will be more bearable for Sodom on the day of judgment than for you.”

I read this passage and think about the places where Jesus did miracles but there was no turning from their sin and turning to God.    This verse 20 – makes the Fear of God rise in me.

Has God done a miracle for you?  Jesus has done miracles for me.  We must make sure we walk in repentance and freedom of Christ.  Set free from our sin and walking free in His Spirit and His grace.

Let’s each of us take Jesus by the hand each day and walk with Him.

Lord help me to walk free.  You took the punishment for my sin and shame.  Help me to walk each day with you.  Help me Lord to know your freedom, love and grace afresh today.
