Matthew 11:2-11
Bible Text: Matthew 11:2-11
In our Gospel reading for today, John the Baptizer is in prison in Herod’s palace. He preached the truth and called out Herod for having his brother’s wife. That landed him in prison. He has been there for a while and doubts are creeping in. Jesus is not the kind of Messiah he expected.
While John is living in the wilderness eating wild honey and locusts, Jesus is turning water into wine. While John is screaming at sinners, Jesus is having dinner with sinners. While John is preaching fire and brimstone, Jesus is preaching love your neighbor.
Join us today as we learn that God honors honest doubt. It is ok to have questions. We all do at some points in our faith journeys.
