Submitting To God’s Will

Luke 7:18-35
Luke 7:18-35 [18] Then the disciples of John reported to him concerning all these things. [19] And John, calling two of his disciples to him, sent them to Jesus, saying, "Are You the Coming One, or do we look for another?" [20] When the men had come to Him, they said, "John the Baptist has sent us to You, saying, 'Are You the Coming One, or do we look for another?'" [21] And that very hour He cured many of infirmities, afflictions, and evil spirits; and to many blind He gave sight. [22] Jesus answered and said to them, "Go and tell John the things you have seen and heard: that the blind see, the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, the poor have the gospel preached to them. [23] And blessed is he who is not offended because of Me." [24] When the messengers of John had departed, He began to speak to the multitudes concerning John: "What did you go out into the wilderness to see? A reed shaken by the wind? [25] But what did you go out to see? A man clothed in soft garments? Indeed those who are gorgeously appareled and live in luxury are in kings' courts. [26] But what did you go out to see? A prophet? Yes, I say to you, and more than a prophet. [27] This is he of whom it is written: 'Behold, I send My messenger before Your face, Who will prepare Your way before You.' [28] For I say to you, among those born of women there is not a greater prophet than John the Baptist; but he who is least in the kingdom of God is greater than he." [29] And when all the people heard Him, even the tax collectors justified God, having been baptized with the baptism of John. [30] But the Pharisees and lawyers rejected the will of God for themselves, not having been baptized by him. [31] And the Lord said, "To what then shall I liken the men of this generation, and what are they like? [32] They are like children sitting in the marketplace and calling to one another, saying: 'We played the flute for you, And you did not dance; We mourned to you, And you did not weep.' [33] For John the Baptist came neither eating bread nor drinking wine, and you say, 'He has a demon.' [34] The Son of Man has come eating and drinking, and you say, 'Look, a glutton and a winebibber, a friend of tax collectors and sinners!' [35] But wisdom is justified by all her children."
