The Expected One

and said to Him, “Are You the Expected One, or shall we look for someone else?” Matthew 11:3

Are you unsure if Jesus is really the Messiah or Son of God? Don’t feel bad if you do, even the prophet, John the Baptist, who Jesus called the greatest (Matthew 11:11), questioned whether Jesus was the Messiah. Its natural for us as humans to be skeptical or hesitant to trust. Because through our lives people have always let us down. But we need to understand that Jesus was perfect, he knew no sin (2 Corinthians 5:21) he spoke truth even when it meant his life.

Lets see how Jesus responds to this question: Jesus answered and said to them, “Go and report to John what you hear and see: the BLIND RECEIVE SIGHT and the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed and the deaf hear, the dead are raised up, and the POOR HAVE THE GOSPEL PREACHED TO THEM. “And blessed is he who does not take offense at Me.” (Matthew 11:4-6)

First off Jesus didn’t get offended he simply said his evidence is by his works. We should not be afraid to ask God questions we don’t know. If you seek you will find (Matthew 7:7) God will reveal the answer to you through his works. Jesus demonstrated who he is , not only by his words, but by his actions.

Lastly notice Jesus says, blessed is he who does not take offense at me”. Anyone who acknowledges Jesus before others he will acknowledge to God the Father (Matthew 10:32) You can’t love God without loving the Son and vice versa.  Let God reveal his Son to you today, keep seeking and asking in Jesus Name Amen
