Matthew 11:4-6 “Jesus replied, “Go back and report to John what you hear and see; The blind receive sight, the lame walk, those who have leprosy are cured, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, and the good news is preached to the poor. Blessed is the man who does not fall away on account of me.”

Do you think that John the Baptist, sitting in Herod’s prison and about to die, had a few doubts? If John was about to be beheaded, perhaps he wondered if he had done what God had called him to do? He’d spent his adult years in the wilderness, dressed in camel’s hair and eating locusts and honey, as he announced the coming of the Lord. He preached repentance. He probably endured great personal hardships and persecution as he sacrificed his life to preach the Messiah’s arrival.

Each one of us has had doubts at times as Christians and even in His service.
We might have asked God and ourselves if our life and ministry have been worth it.

NEVER is our life and ministry in vain when we dedicate it to serve the Lord.
