John’s Doubt – Matt 11:1-19 and Luke 7:18-35
After a time in prison, John’s disciple came to Him and told him all the things that Jesus was doing. John sent his disciples back to ask Jesus if He was the Messiah. It would seem that John had doubt. Something we all face from time to time. Jesus at the time was healing the sick and casting out demons. Jesus sent the disciples back to tell John what they saw. They went back and then Jesus gave a teaching about John.
Jesus was alone when this happened and He was teaching and preaching. Even John had doubt. Doubt comes from time to time and Jesus did not rebuke John He simply assured John by the things that He did. God knows that doubt is a part of faith. It is overcome by assurance.
Jesus wants us to see and hear, how He gave sight to the blind, heals the sick, makes the lame walk, cures leprosy, the deaf hear, the dead are raised to life and the good news is preached to all mankind. Blessed is the man who does not fail on account of Jesus. Jesus wants every one to succeed and success is founded in belief in Jesus Christ. Go and get your dream through Jesus Christ..
