Reflection for May 18, Wednesday of the Seventh Week in OT; Mark 9:38-40

Gospel: Mark 9:38-40
John said to Jesus, “Teacher, we saw someone driving out demons in your name, and we tried to prevent him because he does not follow us.” Jesus replied, “Do not prevent him. There is no one who performs a mighty deed in my name who can at the same time speak ill of me. For whoever is not against us is for us.”

Reflection:
Why do some Catholics leave the church in favor of other Christian church?  If we will ask them why they left they would normally say that they felt Jesus’ presence more in their lives when the Pastor of the Christian church shared passages about Jesus in the bible.

Should we get angry with these Christian churches for taking away some of our brethren who grew bored in our church? Of course not! We should rather be more innovative in our preaching about the word of God so that the faithful will feel Jesus’ presence in their lives.

John said to Jesus: “someone is driving out demons in your name and we tried to prevent him because he does not follow us.” Jesus replied: “Do not prevent him. There is no one who performs a mighty deed in my name who can at the same time speak ill of me. For whoever is not against us is for us.”

We should at all times be gentle, tolerant and loving towards other Christian religions for we preach the same God. We may have our differences with them but at the end of the day we preach the same God and the same Jesus. – Marino J. Dasmarinas

Amen. Thank you sir.

We all have one God and we all have one Savior. Let us help each other, for we are brothers and sisters in our Holy Father in heaven. I'm so thankful for the saving grace of God, and for all the people who are His instruments on spreading His good news.
Me myself is so much sinful that I am not worthy to judge others, just as Jesus came to earth not to judge or condemn the world but to save it. But in the last day of the world, He will judge us all according to our faith. I'm praying for all of us. In Jesus name. Amen.
