The Commands of Christ - Matthew 11:4-6

"Jesus answered and said to them, "Go and tell John the things which you hear and see: 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. And blessed is he who is not offended because of Me." -Matthew 11:4-6

Who is this command spoken to?

This is one of those commands that is for a specific set of people for a specific time. Jesus here speaks to two of John the Baptist's disciples.

What does the command require?

Go and tell John the things which you hear and see

What truths do we learn through this command?

By way of application, we can learn to examine the evidence surrounding who Jesus was. Look at the miracles He did. Look at the people around Him that are being made well. Jesus is the Son of God. All the evidence points in that direction and supports the fact.

We must all give testimony to who Jesus is. Others are asking who Jesus really is. We have the facts. Let's give witness and testify that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of the living God.
