Has Nothing Changed?
Rev. Chandler Stokes
A sermon by Rev. Chandler Stokes on Matthew 11:2–6. John hears what’s going on with Jesus; he looks around and says, “Has nothing changed?” So, John asks Jesus if he’s the one. But John already said earlier that Jesus is the one—he’s made his confession of faith, and now he’s wavering. He’s saying, “I thought you’d be liberating us; I’m still in prison.” Jesus says, “This is what’s going on: Mercy, healing, and hope.” Maybe John was hoping for something more …and aren’t we, too?
