The Evidence

Read Numbers 31:1 through 33:56; Mark 6:14–29

Herod feared John and protected him, knowing him to be a righteous and holy man. When Herod heard John, he was greatly puzzled; yet he liked to listen to him (Mark 6:20).

Herod Antipas occupied last place in his father’s (Herod the Great) list of successors, but he ended up governing Galilee for forty-two years. Conscious of Jewish tradition, Herod did not stamp his image on his coins and removed offending decorations in the palace. He appeared sensitive to the things of God. He even enjoyed listening to John the Baptist speak. But Herod sought human approval more than God’s. Although the evidence of a holy God stood right before him, Herod chose immorality instead of righteousness.

Do you see yourself as a light to the world? Although ungodly, Herod recognized holiness in John. John’s life shined as a light of the holy God he served, and it drew men to that light. You have that same light in you by the power of the Holy Spirit. No one can make another person choose God, but you can lay out the evidence by living a life worthy of the Lord.

Challenge for Today: Live so that your life is evidence that God exists.
