And blessed is he, whosoever shall not be offended in me.
Where there is true faith, yet there may be a mixture of unbelief. The remaining unbelief of good men may sometimes, in an hour of temptation; call in question the most important truths. But we hope that John’s faith did not fail in this matter and that he only desired to have it strengthened and confirmed.
Others think that John sent his disciples to Christ for their satisfaction. Christ points them to what they heard and saw. Christ’s gracious condescensions and compassions to the poor show that it was he that should bring to the world the tender mercies of our God.
Those things which men see and hear, if compared with the Scriptures, direct in what way salvation is to be found. It is difficult to conquer prejudices, and dangerous not to conquer them; but for those who believe in Christ, their faith will be found so much the more to praise, and honour, and glory.
Reality is, sure there is a call to a huge amount of trust and deep demand on our faith to take on the chore of self-denial and many of lifes difficulties. But is repaid abundantly in this world through inward peace and joy. I for one can testify our Lord keeps His promises that we as His children are cared for, so there are peace and joy in our lives. My testimony is I no longer have the burdens of life nor am I a slave to Satan and his wiles. The reality, I am free to use my will in all decisions life requires of me knowing my choices now are mine done in the will of God. “THAT’s REALITY!
