36. Doubts Arise

Luke 7:18-35

Do you ever struggle with doubt? Do you doubt when you're in the middle of painful circumstances? Do you doubt even when you know you shouldn't? I think I can say that all of us, at some time or another, have found ourselves doubting. In today's study we're going to take a look at John the Baptist and his struggle with doubt. Yes, John the Baptist the forerunner of Jesus Christ. In Luke chapter 7 we'll find John stuck alone in a prison cell and he has been assaulted by horrible, accusing thoughts about who Jesus is. Had he been wrong about Jesus?

In our text we'll see that John sent two of his disciples to pose a question to Jesus: "Are You the one who is to come, or shall we look for another?" Many are struggling with doubt today and they are wondering if Jesus Christ is really who He says He is. Is He the Messiah and the Son of God? Let's look at this passage together today.
