How we are like Nazareth

Today I read a nice though from one of Jonathan Cahn's sermons. I'll paraphrase:
In John 1:46, Nathanael asks Phillip, "Can any good thing come out of Nazareth?"

But Yeshua came from heaven -- he only came through Nazareth. Nathanael asks the wrong question.

And each of us is similarly like Nazareth. It does not matter how small or unimportant we are, or what we are capable of by our own strengths and history. Yeshua acts through us. The Spirit of God acts through us.

What is from heaven comes through us.
