The Answer: God Takes Action
Jesus gave them their answer, not through words, but through his actions: healing, and caring, and offering good news to the poor.
John’s question, and Jesus’ response, teach us three things.
First, when we're confused or disappointed, wondering about who God is and what God is doing, we can ask. God isn’t offended by our questions or doubts. Second, when we ask, we might not get the answer we're expecting. Third, often the answer comes by watching where God is at work, not by a booming voice from the clouds.
So as you wonder, as you feel disappointed, as God doesn't quite meet your expectations — ask God about it, expect the unexpected, and keep your eyes open for his work.
