Key Scriptures

The Story of John the Baptist
Mark 6:17-19, 26-28

When John, who was in prison, heard about the deeds of the Messiah, he sent his disciples to ask [Jesus], “Are you the one who is to come, or should we expect someone else?” 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 cleansed, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, and the good news is proclaimed to the poor. Blessed is anyone who does not stumble on account of me.”
Matthew 11:2-6 NIV

Many are the plans in a person's heart, but it is the LORD's purpose that prevails.
Proverbs 19:21 NIV

Key Points

  1. Just because God is silent doesn’t mean God is absent.
  2. You don’t have to understand the plan to trust God’s purpose.
