Rev. Alan J. Wollenburg - Concordia Ev. Lutheran Church - Sikeston, MO
"Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness' sake, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven." Today's Gospel lesson graphically speaks of a disgusting act of sheer terrorism! Poor John the Baptist literally had his handed to him on a platter! Did he lose? Was he defeated? Was his life a waste of time? To the world it would seem so. But we in the church know the promise of God, and it is a promise which we who suffer in the world today are learning to believe in over and over again: "Be faithful unto death, and I will give you the crown of life." (Revelation 2:10) May the Lord lead you to faithful assurance of His grace as Pastor preaches on Mark 6:14-29 on the theme: "Who Wins?" + + +
