Has Jesus become a "Prophet without Honor" in America?

From Tabletalk (June 20, 2008)

Matthew 13:57-58 "'A prophet is not without honor except in his hometown and in his own household.' And he did not do many mighty works there, because of their unbelief."

CORAM DEO - Living before the face of God:
Western society is blessed to be steeped in the teaching of Scripture and the person and work of Christ. However, we must take care that this blessing of familiarity does not motivate contempt in us for the things of God. Even if we do not consciously disregard the Lord, failing to marvel at the Father's grace -- because we hear of it every week -- is a subtle and powerful form of contempt. Take time to meditate on the greatness of our God and His love for us.
