God does welcome sincere questions from His Children. In this passage, we see how Jesus' cousin John the Baptist sent believers to Jesus to ask if He was the Messiah. Jesus replied to them, instructing them to point out the proof of healing and miracles he performed as well as the preaching of the message of Salvation and Truth to those who believe in Him, that He was in fact, the promised Messiah. Anyone who does not stumble is blessed. When we believe in Him, and the miracles He performed, we are blessed. There are people who did not believe in that time that He was the promised Messiah, and instead blasphemed against the Holy Spirit, saying He casted out the demons and illness by the power of the devil. That is the unforgivable sin; it shows you do not believe in the one true God.
The LORD had prepared His Disciples for what was to come. He had prepared them thoroughly; and encouraged them to be strong, have faith, and keep their eyes on the prize; eternity with Him, in Paradise. He told them not to be afraid whenever they are brought before kings, governors, etc., on account of His name. And so they were instructed to speak the truth about what Jesus had taught them. He assured them that He would give them the words to speak whenever they were questioned. It is the power of the Holy Spirit that gives them both the wisdom and words to speak at the appropriate time. Also, whomever they speak to will not be able to deny that what they are saying is the truth.
In this verse we see that we should be ready to give answers to anyone who has questions about our faith. This is to be done with respect towards Christ our LORD and Savior. He instructs His Children to do this with love as He would do. We are to be a reflection of Jesus Christ. We learn in these passages that it is ok for one to have questions for both God, and His Children. Man is not all-knowing. Only God is all-knowing. With this in mind, we must be prepared to handle every situation the way He has done, with love, and respect towards one another. I hope this study on questions is as helpful to you as it is to me. Until the next study, be blessed.
Jesus is the author of life..taking back the souls..one member at a time..
