Do you feel like Jesus has let you down? Do you feel like he has not lived up to your expectations? Maybe, like John, you need to see if what you believe about Jesus is what the bible says about him. For, Jesus will never conform to our expectations of him unless our expectations of him conform to Scripture.
As an aside, John’s expectations of the Messiah weren’t entirely misplaced. He was a prophet after all! Jesus will come one day with a winnowing fork to burn with unquenchable fire all who are not his. But that time as not yet come. There is still time to turn to him for forgiveness and freedom. If you have not already done this, why don’t you ask God to open your eyes and your heart to the beautiful Jesus who the Bible tells us about?
