Evidence

So you say you need evidence…

 

that He is who He says He is

 

God’s Son

 

You are in prison

looking out

 

Can it be?

 

Jesus says to you from outside your prison walls,

 

“The blind see

The lame walk

Those with leprosy are cured

The deaf hear

The DEAD are raised to life

The Good News is being preached to the poor”

 

Grasping your bars

you want to believe

 

People can be so disappointing…

 

But you choose to come out

of sin-prison

 

Into light

 

And sure enough

 

Your blind eyes see

with wisdom new

 

Your lame legs walk

where you never thought you would go

 

Your leprous spots of sin

are cleansed snow white

 

Your deaf ears hear

your beautiful Shepherd’s voice

 

And GLORY!

 

Your dead self

is alive with His Spirit!

 

Your poverty of soul

is filled with the richness of His grace

 

Evidence

John the Baptist, who was in prison, heard about all the things the Messiah was doing. So he sent his disciples to ask Jesus, “Are you the Messiah we’ve been expecting, or should we keep looking for someone else?”

Jesus told them, “Go back to John and tell him what you have heard and seen— the blind see, the lame walk, those with leprosy are cured, the deaf hear, the dead are raised to life, and the Good News is being preached to the poor.”

– Matthew 11:2-5 (NLT)
