The scribes who had come from Jerusalem said of Jesus, “He is possessed by Beelzebul,” and “By the prince of demons he drives out demons.”
Summoning them, he began to speak to them in parables, “How can Satan drive out Satan? If a kingdom is divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand. And if a house is divided against itself, that house will not be able to stand. And if Satan has risen up against himself and is divided, he cannot stand; that is the end of him. But no one can enter a strong man’s house to plunder his property unless he first ties up the strong man. Then he can plunder his house. Amen, I say to you, all sins and all blasphemies that people utter will be forgiven them. But whoever blasphemes against the Holy Spirit will never have forgiveness, but is guilty of an everlasting sin.” For they had said, “He has an unclean spirit.”
Do you think because of the evil in the world that there is no God? Do you believe that He could not exist if evil does? Read what Jesus says and it explains the good that is in the world. Without God there would be no goodness, no healing, no light. There be would only darkness. God is the strong man, the one who will protect you, the one who will save you. You cannot do it on your own, only He can bring you out of the darkness and bring you to the light.
Prayer: Heavenly Father, thank you for bring me into the light and forgiving my sins. Your grace is what I need to keep me from returning to darkness. In Jesus’ holy name I give you praise, Amen!
Proclaim God’s marvelous deeds to all the nations.
