Haggai 1:1-8, Psalm 149, Luke 9:7-9

Power game reversed

Powerful people generally silence rivals. Herod the tetrarch is no exception. In the widespread confusion about the true identity of Jesus, he becomes curious. But, like Pilate, his curiosity is not rooted in genuine desire, but political advantage. Like modern-day Communists, he also discovers that merely decapitating rivals will not stop the steady spread of the Gospel.

Lord, have mercy on those who try to destabilise Your Church.
