Mark 6:19-20 Therefore Herodias held it against him and wanted to kill him, but she could not; for Herod feared John, knowing that he was a just and holy man, and he protected him. And when he heard him, he did many things, and heard him gladly.
And now, Admonition, brought to you by the Collierville Church of Christ.
Mark 6:20 we read, For Herod feared John knowing that he was a just and holy man and he protected him -- protected him from whom Herodias his wife who wanted to kill him -- And when he heard him, he did many things and heard him gladly. Herod was one who listened to John preach, who heard him gladly was open to what John told him and did many things as a result of what John preached.
But there was one area of his life he wasn't willing to listen to John, and it was about his marriage. He wasn't willing to listen to John and obey John's commands to put away his wife because he had no right to be married to her. We need to make sure that when we obey the word of God, we don't pick and choose. We obey everything God has told us to do.
