BELIEF AND DOUBT

Saturday 11-23-19

“Therefore that disciple whom Jesus loved said to Peter, ‘It is the Lord.’ Jesus said to them, ‘Come and have breakfast.’ None of the disciples ventured to question Him, ’Who are you?’ knowing that it was the Lord’” (John 21:7, 12). 

After such a confident declaration of recognition, why would these disciples have even entertained a question of doubt—“Who are you?” I find it encouraging that faith and doubt are honestly presented and allowed to stand side by side, and not just here but throughout the Gospels. Until the Lord comes, wondering will always be part of our worship.
