Amazement is characterized by “overwhelming surprise or shock.” Jesus once healed a demon-possessed man and told him to go and tell his own people what great things God had done for him and how God had shown mercy. When he did, people were amazed.
Consider our influence in the lives of others. When people compare the person we were before with who we are now, are they amazed?
If not, maybe we need to stress more the great things God has done for us and how He has shown mercy.
Our leadership in the home, community, and church should be different when Jesus is part of the equation.
