One God in Three Persons

Mark 6:1–6 (ESV)

1 He went away from there and came to his hometown, and his disciples followed him.

What does Mark 6:1–6 reveal about what God does in and through me (Holy Spirit)?

This passage reveals that I not only need someone to pay for my sin of unbelief if I am to be forgiven by God, but I also need God to change me so that I will repent and believe the gospel when it is preached to me. This work is what the Holy Spirit does within me. God the Holy Spirit has the power to use the preaching of God’s Word to overcome unbelief and work true faith in the hearts of God’s people. He then continues to help me listen to Jesus, to fight against the sin that remains and to pursue righteousness.
