The Word of God speaks about an interesting thing which is very actual in our life. John came to Jesus and said they saw a man driving out demons in the name of Jesus, but that man did not follow them, so they rebuked him. Jesus answers, “Do not stop him, for whoever is not against you, is for you” (Luke 9:50).
We see the world is filled with hatred today, Christian churches are not tolerant to each other. If we even put the tolerance aside, we will see they don’t have love for each other. The reason is that people think only their church is true, and whoever is not from their church, is wrong.
But only Christ is true, not this or that church. The church that follows Jesus Christ and obeys His commandments is true. Christ rebukes His disciples and says, “Do not stop him, for whoever is not against you, is for you”. That means if someone or a church is not against Christ, worships, honors and fears Him, he or that church is for Christ. Maybe he doesn’t understand us, but that does not necessarily mean he is wrong.
I challenge you to have a soft heart and love for others. It doesn’t matter what church the man belongs to, if he is the follower of Christ and loves Christ, bless him, don’t look at either his appearance, or property, or ability, or knowledge.
Let us love and lift each other up. Christ said, “who is not against us, is for us”. Be blessed!
