MARK
Mark 6:14-29
Week 20
A MISSED OPPORTUNITY

Mark 6:14-16 NLT
14Herod Antipas, the king, soon heard about Jesus, because everyone was talking about him. Some were saying, “This must be John the Baptist raised from the dead. That is why he can do such miracles.” 15Others said, “He’s the prophet Elijah.” Still others said, “He’s a prophet like the other great prophets of the past.” 16When Herod heard about Jesus, he said, “John, the man I beheaded, has come back from the dead.”
The Danger of A Divided Heart

Mark 6:17-20 NLT
17For Herod had sent soldiers to arrest and imprison John as a favor to Herodias. She had been his brother Philip’s wife, but Herod had married her. 18John had been telling Herod, “It is against God’s law for you to marry your brother’s wife.” 19So Herodias bore a grudge against John and wanted to kill him. But without Herod’s approval she was powerless, 20for Herod respected John; and knowing that he was a good and holy man, he protected him. Herod was greatly disturbed whenever he talked with John, but even so, he liked to listen to him.

James 1:8 NLT
8Their loyalty is divided between God and the world, and they are unstable in everything they do.
Don't Miss The Opportunity

Mark 6:21-29 NLT
21Herodias’s chance finally came on Herod’s birthday. He gave a party for his high government officials, army officers, and the leading citizens of Galilee. 22Then his daughter, also named Herodias, came in and performed a dance that greatly pleased Herod and his guests. “Ask me for anything you like,” the king said to the girl, “and I will give it to you.” 23He even vowed, “I will give you whatever you ask, up to half my kingdom!”
24She went out and asked her mother, “What should I ask for?”
Her mother told her, “Ask for the head of John the Baptist!”
25So the girl hurried back to the king and told him, “I want the head of John the Baptist, right now, on a tray!” 26Then the king deeply regretted what he had said; but because of the vows he had made in front of his guests, he couldn’t refuse her. 27So he immediately sent an executioner to the prison to cut off John’s head and bring it to him. The soldier beheaded John in the prison, 28brought his head on a tray, and gave it to the girl, who took it to her mother. 29When John’s disciples heard what had happened, they came to get his body and buried it in a tomb.

James 1:8 NLT
8Their loyalty is divided between God and the world, and they are unstable in everything they do.
Three Thoughts
1. It Is Powerful When You Use God's Voice...No Matter What It Costs You or Where It Puts You
2. Our Identity Is Found In Jesus
3. Do Not Harden Your Heart

Luke 23:8a, 9, 11 ESV
8aWhen Herod saw Jesus, he was very glad, for he had long desired to see him..

9So he questioned him at some length, but he made no answer.

11And Herod with his soldiers treated him with contempt and mocked him. Then, arraying him in splendid clothing, he sent him back to Pilate.

2 Corinthians 6:2b NLT
2bIndeed, the “right time” is now. Today is the day of salvation.
