The Baptist Dies for the Faith

Matthew 14:1-12 NRSV

Though Herod wanted to put him to death, he feared the crowd, because they regarded him as a prophet. Matthew 14:5

Herod let the weight of sin guide what should have been a time of prayer. The hymn writer encourages us to “Yield not to temptation, for yielding is sin. Each victory will help you some other to win.”
