  • Series: Gospel of Mark #11
  • Scripture: Mk 6:14-29
  • Location: St Paul's Cooma

The tragic and terrible death of John the Baptist at the hands of Herod Antipas and his wife Herodias tells us starkly that Christian discipleship is not for the half-hearted.

Christians who last the distance are those who know that their reward is not success or even safety, but the certain knowledge that they are serving God’s great purposes.
