John’s disciples told him about all these things. Calling two of them, he sent them to the Lord to ask, “Are you the one who is to come, or should we expect someone else?”

– Luke 7:18-19 (NIV)

Today’s commentary
by Dave Whitehead, Senior Pastor, GraceNYC.org

It seemed that Jesus ministry was not taking the direction that John the Baptist had expected. John had not been released from prison and Jesus had not led the Jews to overthrow the Romans. It seems that we can project our own agendas onto God, and then become confused when God does something different. Many people have fallen from the faith because things did not go their way, but to look for what God is doing brings a blessing to our lives.
