WHOEVER IS NOT AGAINST US IS FOR US

After our last story, hopefully you've added a new identity to your person. No matter how old you are, you are a child of God. Children of the Lord aren't only a group of elementary Sunday school kids are they?! So, boys and girls, shall we continue with the story of Jesus?

WHOEVER IS NOT AGAINST US IS FOR US STUDY ON WHOEVER IS NOT AGAINST US IS FOR US QUOTE WITH WHOEVER IS NOT AGAINST US IS FOR US MESSAGE

In this story we have a smorgasbord of different things to share. After Jesus told the Apostles that you must be as a child to enter Heaven and that the least would be the greatest, John spoke up and told Jesus, Master, we saw someone casting out devils in your name and we stopped him because he doesn't follow us. Jesus said, Don't forbid him. There isn't a man that will do a miracle in my name who can easily speak evil about me. Whoever isn't against us, is for us.

Let's stop and discuss this for a bit. Whoever is not against us is for us. Let's compare this to the world today. We have Christians of all kinds. Many different denominations are Christians. Some go to church, others don't. Some are evangelists who have huge ministries. Some are quiet folks who aren't outgoing, but are private people who love the Lord. Some are Mother Theresa types, missionaries, ministers, nuns, monks, and on and on and on. Some are charismatic, some pray silently. We're on the same team. We cheer one another on. If you're on the other side, you may see us fall sometimes, but only a worm is free from the worry of stumble. If we fall, we get back up. Sometimes one of our teammates gives us a hand.

There are a lot of people who are skeptical about Christianity. They think that Christians are saying that if you become a Christian, your life will be perfect. There isn't a Christian that ever lived that can claim such a thing. Did you read the last paragraph? We fall! We get up. Now, here's the clincher. When we acknowledge our sin (fall) to God and don't hide it - and when we confess it to the Lord, we're forgiven! Only one string attached ... we must be sorry. That comes from a Psalm of David by the way, Psalms 32:5.

Now we've gotten off the beaten path just a little, so let's get back to this Whoever is not against us is for us stuff. Do you think it matters to Jesus if you go to this Christian church or that one, or if passing along inspirational writings through e-mail is church to you, if you sing loudly or softly or off key from the hymnal or if you put on your headphones and whistle along to a modern Christian tune. It doesn't matter what your recipe is for casting out devils, or anything else you do from the goodness of your heart is, as long as you do it in Jesusí name, you've got the key ingredient and that's what counts. That puts you on the "for us" side! The last thing Jesus wanted ... Was for His team to have competition among themselves. DIVISION... We're all on the same team, so let's work together!

WHOEVER IS NOT AGAINST US IS FOR US WARNING ON WHOEVER IS NOT AGAINST US IS FOR US DANGERS WITH WHOEVER IS NOT AGAINST US IS FOR US CONCERN

Jesus said, Woe to the world because of offences! For it must needs be that offences come; but woe to that man by whom the offence cometh! What does that mean? It means sorrow will come to the world because of harmful events, and it's unavoidable that bad things will happen, but the man who causes those events will have the worst sorrow of all. That is what puts those people on the "against us" side.

Make no mistake, satan is always looking for ways to lure you over to his side. Jesus said, So if your hand or your foot offend you (causes harm), cut them off, and throw them away because it's better to live lame or crippled rather than having two hands or two feet and to be thrown into everlasting fire.

Whew! It's a good thing that Jesus spoke in parables, isn't it?! We learned about this in an earlier story, remember? Of course He doesn't want us to cut off our hands or feet, but to cut off the evil that causes them to perform mischief. He was thinking of His Father's children when He said this. Remember, the children of the Lord that we've been talking about? In other words, we are all His little children and whoever harms any of us in any way is in deep trouble. I'd call a millstone around someone's neck and thrown into the bottom of the sea ... Pretty deep trouble.

Jesus emphasized a number of times that those who offend His children will end up where the fire is never quenched and the worm never dies. That's a pretty gruesome picture that Jesus painted. Then He said a very interesting thing for those of you who have always wondered about whether Angels are real or not. Jesus said, (concerning God's children) Be careful that you never harm one of these little ones, because I tell you, that in Heaven their Angels always look upon the face of my Father. So, that not only clarifies that there ARE Angels, but that each of us HAS an Angel, which are known as Guardian Angels. God does love His children and He gave us Angels to protect us because we're so precious to Him.

WHOEVER IS NOT AGAINST US IS FOR US SUMMARY WITH WHOEVER IS NOT AGAINST US IS FOR US BLESSING BRINGING FORTH WHOEVER IS NOT AGAINST US IS FOR US HOPE

Well, now you've got another identity to add to your person -- team player! Don't forget, even though you wear many hats as a Christian, each of us has a specific purpose that God intended for us, and no matter what that purpose is, without you, the team will suffer. Glad you're part of the team!

SO ALWAYS REMEMBER ... WHOEVER IS NOT AGAINST US IS FOR US
