Jesus and the Prince of Demons 06-06-16

_ 060616 NO DEMONS

(CLICK THE TITLE) Good morning and praise the Lord for another chance to get things in the right order. Sometimes we are so busy being busy; we don’t get a chance to enjoy the peace of God. Think about that for awhile.

Today’s Prayer

Father, the summer vacation season is here. People will be traveling and going places to get away from their daily routine. I pray that we will also take time to relax, to be still and know that You are God, to soak up Your presence and peace, to be aware of all the blessings You bestow. I pray for safety for those who are traveling. I also pray that we will remember our witness as we go out into the world, that others will see Jesus in our lives. May we be loving, kind, and considerate to others (no road rage or short tempers!). I ask for a break and a time of special memories and enjoyment for those who cannot financially afford to go away somewhere different. We all need refreshment. Even Jesus took time out to rest. Please help us follow His example in this, and in His faithfulness to You. In His name I pray, Amen.

Let’s eat.

Jesus and the Prince of Demons

Mark 3:20-30 

When Jesus returned to the house where he was staying, the crowds began to gather again, and soon he and his disciples couldn’t even find time to eat. When his family heard what was happening, they tried to take him home with them. “He’s out of his mind,” they said. But the teachers of religious law who had arrived from Jerusalem said, “He’s possessed by Satan, the prince of demons. That’s where he gets the power to cast out demons.” Jesus called them over and said to them by way of illustration, “How can Satan cast out Satan? A kingdom at war with itself will collapse. A home divided against itself is doomed. And if Satan is fighting against himself, how can he stand? He would never survive. Let me illustrate this. You can’t enter a strong man’s house and rob him without first tying him up. Only then can his house be robbed! “I assure you that any sin can be forgiven, including blasphemy; but anyone who blasphemes against the Holy Spirit will never be forgiven. It is an eternal sin.” He told them this because they were saying he had an evil spirit.

Quote of the Day

The purpose of this Christian society called the “Church” is, first: to glorify God by our worship. We do not go to church just to hear a sermon. We go to church to worship God.
