WHO IS FOR JESUS
Mark 9:36-41New International Version (NIV)
36: He took a little child whom he placed among them. Taking the child in his arms he said to them, 37: “Whoever welcomes one of these little children in my name welcomes me; and whoever welcomes me does not welcome me but the one who sent me.” 38: “Teacher,” said John, “we saw someone driving out demons in your name and we told him to stop, because he was not one of us.” 39: “Do not stop him,” Jesus said. “For no one who does a miracle in my name can in the next moment say anything bad about me, 40: for whoever is not against us is for us 41: Truly I tell you, anyone who gives you a cup of water in my name because you belong to the Messiah will certainly not lose their reward.
When we as different dominations disagree with what we are taught, that doesn’t mean they aren’t Christians. As long as the doctrine is true to God’s word. The way that they bring it is useful to the Gospel. Some people may be able to reach others because of their social status or their way of life. As long as they are true believers in Christ, we must accept them as brothers and sisters in Christ.
ON THE WAY HOME WALK WITH JESUS and learn to live with ALL brothers and sisters in CHRIST just as JESUS taught the Disciples!
