Matthew 11:1-6


Intro: This chapter finds John the Baptist at the lowest moment of his life. He is in Herod's prison and he has been there for some time. In fact, after about 16 months of incarceration, John was beheaded. As he sits in that dungeon, Satan has time to introduce doubt into the mind of John concerning the person of the Lord Jesus Christ. So, John begins to question whether or not Jesus is really the Messiah. Of course, John had not always doubted! There was a time early in the ministry of our Lord that John was well acquainted with just Who Jesus was, John 1:29; John 3:30.

Now, there is a little question in His mind. So, John sends his disciples to ask Jesus if He is the messiah or not. Jesus responds by telling John's disciples to go an tell John that Jesus is healing the sick, raising the dead and preaching the Gospel to sinners. In other words, Jesus is telling John, "I'm Him!"

I want you to know that there are times when I can sympathize with John. Surely, we all entertain doubts every now and then. If it were possible, I would like to go to John this morning and have him take a little trip with me. If I could, I would take John to some places and show him some things about Jesus. When I had done that I can almost hear John saying now, "That's Him! That's Him!". Well, I can't take John to those places this morning, but I can take us. If you will, come along with me this morning, I want to take you on a little trip and show you some truths about Jesus that should leave us all saying, "That's Him!"

Whatever you need, wherever you are in your walk of life, all you need to know today is this: That's Him!

It all comes down to this: If you need as Savior, That's Him. If you need a friend, that's Him. If you have a need that must be met: that's Him. If you need forgiveness, that's Him. If you want to miss Hell and go to Heaven, that's Him. Whatever you need: that's Him!
