John’s followers told John everything that was being said about Jesus. So he sent two of them to ask the Lord, “Are you the one we should be looking for? Or must we wait for someone else?”
(Luke 7:18-19 CEV)
Even the great preacher had his times of doubt. When Jesus didn’t bring the results John expected, the Baptist began to doubt if Jesus was truly the Messiah he had been waiting for. So John sent his disciples to Jesus with the question, “Are you the one we should be looking for? Or must we wait for someone else?” Jesus answered by pointing to His miracles (Luke 7:21-22), the evidence that characterized the ministry of the Messiah, and added, “God will bless everyone who doesn’t reject me because of what I do” (Luke 7:23). While Jesus understood John’s doubt and discouragement, He didn’t want John to be ensnared by them. Therefore, when in doubt, come to Jesus, expecting an answer.
Our doubts don’t make God love us less because even then He still cares.
