Herod the Great was not so great. In reality he was a power-hungry nut job who was paranoid and willing to off anyone who threatened his authority. When the Magi told him that the new King of the Jews had been born in Bethlehem, Herod did not respond with worship or even curiosity. He felt the threat to his position and power, and responded in a way that should terrify us, killing innocent babies in the little village of Bethlehem in an attempt to destroy Jesus. Herod missed Jesus because His presence was a threat to His power. But before we judge too quickly, maybe we are a bit more like Herod than we want to believe. Weston Ely will preach our last sermon in the "No Vacancy" series, and share how our desire to be in control of our lives can cause us to miss Jesus.
