DINNER GUESTS

Mark 6:26”And although the king was very sorry, yet because of his oaths and because of his dinner guests, he was unwilling to refuse her.”


So, this king Herod, knew that John the Baptist was righteous, good man, upright, harmless, holy and blameless; YET, he was unwilling to talk on John’s behalf because of his dinner guests, what, dinner guests?  Imagine, cutting off a good man’s head because of few jokers who were his booze-party companions, isn’t that atrocious?  This portion of the Bible kind of disturbed me terribly, hence I thought I would pour out my emotions here……(where else would I go? bear with me friends)

What would my friends say if I read the Bible in my office? What would they say if they found me praying at lunch breaks? What would they think if I said I will not do this because my Bible instructs me not to do this? Many live their lives pleasing the whole world except GOD, are you hearing me? No wonder they don’t hear God! Did not God say, ‘I will honor those who honor me?’  If your passion for God is hot it would glow and show!  I could not hide it when I got saved, everywhere I walked and talked I had something to share about Jesus.  I was walking around the corridors of the plush bank with a mini Bible in my hand during lunch breaks, I was not ashamed to carry ‘POWER’ in my hands, give God a shout of praise!  While people who hold big, powerful positions look gloomy, grumpy and sad, here I am walking in power, peace and joy because I REFUSED to put down His POWERFUL WORD.  Glory!

How could we call anybody ‘sinners’ when we have not proclaimed the name of Jesus to them, which comes with a package of ‘forgiveness of sins and salvation?’ We got to find a way, well, I do agree the commotion that it would bring; nevertheless, we got to share Jesus without which there is no atonement of sins. People who do not know Jesus, are living like the thoughtless, brainless moron like  king Herod who severed the head of a good man because of ‘dinner guests!’  Let this devotion provoke you to share Jesus and His love to your friends, family and relatives, God bless you!
