The third Sunday of Advent
TELL OUT MY SOUL!
‘Are you the one who is to come, or are we to wait for another?’ MATTHEW 11:3
Sitting in his prison cell I suspect John the Baptist can be forgiven if he is having a little bit of a faith crisis. Are you really the Messiah or have I been mistaken all this time? Jesus answers his disciples, ‘Go and tell John what you hear and see: The blind receive their sight, the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, and the poor have good news brought to them. And blessed is anyone who takes no offence at me. MATTHEW 11:4-6
In response to John’s doubt Jesus directs him to God’s glory and to the word of God. If you too have been asked if Jesus is the one, the best way to answer is just the same. Answer by proclaiming the glories of God and all that he is doing in your life.
The unexpectedly expecting Mary gives us a good example of how it is done.
‘My soul magnifies the Lord, and my spirit rejoices in God my Saviour’
