Mark Day 27
But Jesus said, “Do not stop him, for no one who does a mighty work in my name will be able soon afterward to speak evil of me. 40 For the one who is not against us is for us. 41 For truly, I say to you, whoever gives you a cup of water to drink because you belong to Christ will by no means lose his reward. Mark 9:39-41
Hear this! There is power in the name of Jesus and that power is revealed through those who truly believe. Don’t be an interruption to those who believe and don’t let the pleasures and problems of this world interrupt your belief either. The name of Jesus rules. Deal with the things that get in the way of your belief and do not dilute the power of Jesus name. It would be better to cut off your wondering foot, your wicked hand and pluck out your wrongful eye that to dilute the power of the name of Jesus. Live in the pleasure of His name rather than the pleasure of your game. Lift up His name over your pleasures and problems and preserve life rather than poison it. Lift up the name of Jesus over your tests and trials and He will preserve you. As you and I live in the power of His name we are not only preserved but we will preserve life in this world too. Lift up His name and see His power in this life. Hell is real and we don’t have to die to start living there but heaven is real too and in the power of Jesus’ name we start living in heaven today. In order to see the power of Jesus’ name we must first hear that there is power in His name. Hear and see.
