I Peter 2:23

He had John the Baptist beheaded. He killed James with the sword. He had every intention of putting Peter to death. King Herod was doing everything in his power to destroy the church.

The results?

Worms ate up King Herod and then he was struck dead.

The church flourished. The word of God grew and multiplied.

God is always in control.

He always has the last word.

Concern yourself with proclaiming the gospel and living it out. Jesus will take care of the rest.
