“NO DOUBTS”
(Luke 7:18-28) by PASTOR ULYSSES STEPHEN KING, JR.

What doubts are you struggling with this morning? Maybe you doubt that God has really forgiven you? Or you wonder whether the Bible really is the Word of God? Or you question why God allows people suffer? Or you’ve been praying for help with a struggle in your life, but so far there has been silence, and you’re wondering whether anybody’s at home in heaven, or if there is, whether He really cares.

Normal faith is allowed to question and doubt. Some people think that doubt is unforgivable. Look at Jesus and John the Baptist in our scripture passage this morning. Jesus doesn’t slam John for his doubts. He sends back evidence to bolster John’s faith. Jesus tells John’s disciples, “Go and tell John the things you have seen and heard: that the blind see, the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, the poor have the gospel preached to them” (v. 23). He gives John the greatest compliment in the midst of his doubt. “For I say to you, among those born of women there is not a greater prophet than John the Baptist; but he who is least in the kingdom of God is greater than he” (v. 28).

Doubt and faith can co-exist. One very important implication of our study today is that if doubt and faith can co-exist, then people don’t have to fully resolve each and every obstacle in order to have an authentic faith. We can make the choice to believe and ask God to help us with our unbelief.

People believe that doubt is unhealthy. However, doubt can produce some positive side effects. Lee Strobel says it’s like getting an immunization: “To help your body fight off a future disease, doctors inject you with a small amount of that very same disease, and your body builds up antibodies that will battle off that disease if it ever threatens you. Your body is actually stronger for the experience.”

Well, when we’re infected with some doubts, and we seek answers to our questions and deal constructively with the doubt, we emerge stronger than ever because our faith has been confirmed once more, and that gives us new confidence in dealing with doubt in the future. —Notes by USK
