Jesus Always The Same

Always The Same

When John the Baptist was thrown into prison Jesus sent John’s disciples back with good news about what Jesus was doing. “The blind see and the lame walk; the lepers are cleansed and the deaf hear; the dead are raised up and the poor have the gospel preached to them” (Matthew 11:5-6 NKJV). John might not have seen this but I’m sure he immediately thought of the prophecies of the Messiah coming and doing these mighty miracles. “5 Then the eyes of the blind will be opened and the ears of the deaf will be unstopped. 6 Then the lame will leap like a deer, and the tongue of the mute will shout for joy” (Isaiah 35:5-6 NASB). “The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me, because the LORD has anointed me to bring good news to the afflicted; He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to captives and freedom to prisoners” (Isaiah 61:1 NASB) .When John heard the good news, I’m sure his heart melted for the one who had come. Jesus is the same yesterday, today, and forever (Hebrews 13:8).
