Matthew 11:2-11


     If you were to die for a cause, wouldn’t you want to know the cause was worthy?  Those trained in the military will tell you that is key.  Give a person a worthy cause and he or she will put life on the line.


     John the Baptizer was imprisoned.  He knew his days were numbered.  So he sends his disciples out to check on things.  They return with the message:  Miracles are happening and God’s Kingdom is being proclaimed.  “Blessed is the one who does not fall away.”


     The Baptizer stays the course.  So can we.
