“More than Entertainment”
Mark 6: 20: “For Herod was afraid of John, knowing that he was a righteous and holy man, and kept him safe. And when he heard him, he was very perplexed; but he used to enjoy listening to him.” Enjoying the preacher’s sermons is not good enough. Entertaining talks are a dime a dozen these days. This same Herod who was entertained by John was not at all impressed with Jesus, because he didn’t find Him entertaining (Luke 23: 8-11). His life did not end well(Acts 12: 23). We must come to Christ because He is Lord, not because He’s good for a laugh.
