Matthew 11:1-19

No one is perfect. We're back to John the Baptist but today the setting is different. John is now in prison and the words coming from his mouth are quite different from his words in John 1 (see Monday's blog). From prison, John sends his disciples to ask Jesus if he (Jesus) really is the one to come or if people should expect someone else. Are you thinking, like I am, What in the world is going on here? This just seems odd coming from John--or does it--particularly when you think about what John is experiencing? Yes, he's John the Baptist (and as Jesus says in today's passage, there's no person born greater than him), but these verses show us that no matter who we are, we're going to encounter struggles, and we will stumble and fall at times.

So what are some things we can do now to prepare us for those tough times and help us minimize our stumbling and falling? And what about those times when we do stumble? We've all been there. What's worked to get you back on track? Tami W.

Jesus' answer to John's disciples is amazing. Many passages in Isaiah give us a glimpse of what the Messiah would look like. Isaiah 61 is a good one. But I think Jesus' answer and their knowledge of Isaiah calm their hearts.
