Herod Antipas

Herod illustrates well, the need of man for a Savior. His royalty and great wealth allowed him to live a large life. As a magnified cut away of a city map helps us to see the territory in greater detail, the largeness of Herod’s fallen nature can also help us see our own condition. A humble seeker of God may be able to find portions of his own fallen character, that under different circumstances, could also enlarge on a grand scale for all to see and historians to record.

Yet, thankfully, we have a savior to spare us from our own sin, and when we sin, to use His truth to turn us back to Himself, that He might bestow on us His mercy and love, which is larger than all the sin in the world.
