There comes a time when we have to deal with either the pain of change or the pain of regret.

Quick Summary

Herod's actions and attitudes surrounding the beheading of John the Baptist shows us that Herod knew that he was doing something wrong. Deep down, he knew that John was righteous and holy, but he didn't want to recognize his own sin and repent.

EPISODE NOTES

In this episode, we explore the emotions that Herod must have felt after hearing the news about Jesus. His hindsight doesn’t save John the Baptist’s life, but could it save his own?

Take Aways

  1. Society and community bullied Herod into doing what he knew was the wrong thing. We need to be ever diligent in recognizing factors that try to stand in God's way.

  2. We can be enslaved to many things, but if we invite the Holy Spirit into our lives, we can change anything.
