November 21, Luke 7:18-35 What do you expect in church?

There are at least two issues I see today, the first is doubt. It's O.K. to have doubts. John the Baptist saw the Holy Spirit descend and he heard the voice of God yet he still had doubts. Possibly because people expected something different from Messiah than what Jesus was doing. But instead of a simple yes Jesus tells John to check the evidence. He still tells us the same thing, are lives changed, relationships restored, people healed?
The second part deals with why the people went to see John and why people go to church. John at the time would have been an entertainment, attracting crowds. You would have people truly seeking God, some looking for business connections, some wanting to be entertained, and some seperating the people by economic classes. That too hasn't changed, in any church in any city there will only be a part that truly seek God. What are you here for?
