John the Baptist once had an episode of doubt. Keep in mind that John saw Jesus and testified to his disciples: “Look, the Lamb of God!” So he knew who Jesus was, even when few others did. However, even though John had great spiritual strength, he also had a moment of weakness. He doubted what he knew to be true about Jesus.

Let’s say you witnessed a gang related crime. Okay, okay, I know that seems unlikely – but work with me here! The police approach you and ask you if you are willing to testify.
