At that time, John summoned two of his disciples and sent them to the Lord to ask, “Are you the one who is to come, or should we look for another?” When the men came to the Lord, they said, “John the Baptist has sent us to you to ask, ‘Are you the one who is to come, or should we look for another?’” At that time Jesus cured many of their diseases, sufferings, and evil spirits; he also granted sight to many who were blind. And Jesus said to them in reply, “Go and tell John what you have seen and heard: the blind regain their sight, the lame walk, lepers are cleansed, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, the poor have the good news proclaimed to them. And blessed is the one who takes no offense at me.”
John never saw the miracles that Jesus worked, but his disciples did. They could give credible testimony to John and that is what Jesus wanted. He wanted them to spread the word, not only to John but to others. Seeing is believing sometimes, but many times the testimony of friends and family make believers. Who do you give your testimony to? To whom do you share the miracle of Jesus with? Christ wants us to be like those disciples – spread His word, the truth of His miracles to your friends and families, to those you love and want to be healed.
Prayer: Heavenly Father, thank you for the testimonies I have heard of your goodness and truth. They brought me to the miracle that is you. I pray others hear and believe in you and in the name of your most holy Son, Jesus Christ, Amen.
Let the clouds rain down the Just One, and the earth bring forth a Savior.
