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.”
Jesus did not need to answer them, He told them to just look around. When we see the fruits of the Word of God, we need no words, we can see that miracles are happening. Do people need to ask you what you are doing or do they see the fruit of your work? Do they see miracles?
Prayer: Heavenly Father, I have seen miracles all around me when I am with people that do your work. I just pray, Lord, that they see miracles when I do your work. In Jesus’ holy name, Amen.
Let the clouds rain down the Just One, and the earth bring forth a Savior.
