Jesus — the great question asker

I love to ask people questions because great questions can usually cut through a lot of the fog.  Jesus was a person who was always asking great questions…

  • When the  disciples were in a boat  in a terrible storm, Jesus asked,  “Why are you afraid?” (Matthew 8:26)
  • He asked  the  disciples, when  they were  faced  with feeding  a crowd of over 5,000 people,  “Where shall  we buy bread for these people  to eat?”  (John 6:5)
  • He asked  the  woman  caught in adultery, “Where  are  your accusers? Has no one condemned you?” (John 8:10)
  • After teaching the  crowds  about  how much  God cares for them, He asked  them, “Why do you worry about what you will eat and what you will wear?” (Matthew 6:31)
  • When Peter made his claim  that  he  would  die for Jesus, Jesus asked,  “Will you really  lay down  your life for me?” (John  13:38) And then,  after  his resurrection, Jesus asked  him, “Do you love me?” (John 21:17)
  • Is Jesus asking you any questions today?
