34 I saw this happen to Jesus, so I testify that he is the Chosen One of God.”
— John 1:34 NLT
John the Baptist was sent for the specific purpose of preparing the way for Jesus Christ the Messiah. He pointed people toward the time when Jesus would come to earth. He did this powerfully and unafraid even to the point of confronting Herod about his adultery with Herodias. He seemed to have no doubt about his purpose and God’s plan for his life. He carried it through even unto his death. In Matthew 11:11, Jesus said no one who had ever lived was greater than John.
Matt. 11:11 (NLT) “I tell you the truth, of all who have ever lived, none is greater than John the Baptist. Yet even the least person in the Kingdom of Heaven is greater than he is!
John the Baptist would never doubt or would he?
John the Baptist had doubts and Jesus called him the greatest person to ever live. So, if you have doubts about Jesus don’t let satan beat you up about it. Jesus already knows that you have those doubts. Do what John the Baptist did, ask Jesus about your doubts. Jesus can use those doubts to bring you into a closer relationship with Him. As you draw nearer to Him, those doubts will start to disappear. You will have joy in your salvation and strength to overcome all your battles.
