5 And because of their unbelief, he couldn’t do any miracles among them except to place his hands on a few sick people and heal them.
Jesus couldn't heal a lot of people in His hometown of Nazareth because of their unbelief. I won't have unbelief in my life when it comes to believing for healing in my right eye.

But Jesus overheard them and said to Jairus, “Don’t be afraid. Just have faith.”
Mark 5:36 NLT
There are a lot of scary things in the world that can make me afraid, but Jesus told Jairus not to be afraid when the worst thing happened when his daughter died and Jairus had faith and Jesus raised his daughter from the dead. That means I need to have faith in this trying time because Jesus said not for me to be afraid.

But Jesus said, “No, go home to your family, and tell them everything the Lord has done for you and how merciful he has been.” So the man started off to visit the Ten Towns of that region and began to proclaim the great things Jesus had done for him; and everyone was amazed at what he told them.
Mark 5:19-20 NLT
Jesus wanted the demoniac to share his testimony and not just follow Him. Jesus wants me to share His love with everyone and tell others about what He has done for me. He has saved my life by leading my parents to adopt me and He saved my soul by showing me His salvation.

Then he added, “Pay close attention to what you hear. The closer you listen, the more understanding you will be given—and you will receive even more. To those who listen to my teaching, more understanding will be given. But for those who are not listening, even what little understanding they have will be taken away from them.”
Mark 4:24-25 NLT
I need to listen to understand what God is saying in His Word. I need to pay attention to what it says, listening to Jesus' teachings will give me more understanding. If I don't pay attention even what I do understand will be taken away.

And the seed that fell on good soil represents those who hear and accept God’s word and produce a harvest of thirty, sixty, or even a hundred times as much as had been planted!”
Mark 4:20 NLT
I need to be the person who is good soil and accepts God's Word. I need to produce a harvest in my life, reaching people for Jesus. That is what I'm supposed to do.

Anyone who does God’s will is my brother and sister and mother.”
Mark 3:35 NLT
Jesus does have family, it's you and me, and doing the will of God makes me a member of Jesus' family. I do the will of God by reading His word and obeying what He says.
