 Jesus Teaches About The Kingdom, Part 1

Matthew 11:1-10

After Jesus had finished instructing his twelve disciples, he went on from there to teach and preach in the towns of Galilee.[a]

When John, who was in prison, heard about the deeds of the Messiah, he sent his disciples to ask him, “Are you the one who is to come, or should we expect someone else?”

Jesus replied, “Go back and report to John what you hear and see: The blind receive sight, the lame walk, those who have leprosy[b] are cleansed, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, and the good news is proclaimed to the poor. Blessed is anyone who does not stumble on account of me.”

As John’s disciples were leaving, Jesus began to speak to the crowd about John: “What did you go out into the wilderness to see? A reed swayed by the wind? If not, what did you go out to see? A man dressed in fine clothes? No, those who wear fine clothes are in kings’ palaces. Then what did you go out to see? A prophet? Yes, I tell you, and more than a prophet. 10 This is the one about whom it is written:

“‘I will send my messenger ahead of you,
 who will prepare your way before you.’


Jesus confirms who he is by the works he did and who he did them for.  Why wouldn’t he do it for me?  He did not discriminate with who he blessed.


I can look at the evidence of Jesus being in my life and look at the evidence of Christ work in my life.  And be encouraged.


Lord, I thank you for the record you left for us who may question, if it is you.  I thank you for the work you have done in my life, and I can see that it was you all the time.  Thank you, Jesus.  Amen.
