“Whosoever shall receive one of such children in My Name, receiveth me: and whosoever shall receive me, receiveth not me, but him that sent me. And John answered him, saying, Master, we saw one casting out devils in thy name, and he followeth not us: and we forbad him, because he followeth not us.
But JESUS SAID, FORBID HIM NOT: for there is no man which shall do a miracle in my name, that can lightly speak evil of me. For he that is NOT against us is on our part. For whosoever shall give you a cup of water to drink in My Name, because ye belong to Christ, verily I say unto you, he shall not lose his reward. And whosoever shall offend one of these little ones THAT BELIEVE IN ME, it is better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he were cast into the sea,” (Mark 9:37-42 KJV).
So many of God’s people are without both knowledge and wisdom.
They have failed to understand that just because some people are not following you, or are in your little circle, does not mean that what they are doing does not matter, or that you should hinder the work that they are doing in Christ!
Jesus had to teach John that the 12 disciples were not the ONLY ones at that time doing a work for The LORD, but there were also others, besides the 12 disciples.
Many times we get caught up with the 12 disciples and what they did, because they were chosen, but even within the 12, one was a devil!
Not only was one a devil, but one doubted him and the others denied him, yet Christ was a God of a first and a second chance when it came to those who walked with him!
He knew that the disciples had to be trained and equipped in order to do the work He had for them to do. This is why He took time out to train them in the areas in which each of them was weak!
Jesus rebuked John sternly and said, “FORBID HIM NOT: for there is NO man which shall do a miracle in My Name, that can lightly speak evil of Me….”
May the works that we each do, speak for us, ad we as a Body, learn to encourage and to build each other up in the most holy faith, without tearing one another down destroying Christ’s most holy work!
