Mark 3:22-30: Jesus and Beelzebul

If a kingdom is divided against itself. To discredit Jesus, the Pharisees accuse Jesus of conniving with the prince of demons. They attribute his healing power to Beelzebul. In reply, Jesus points to the absurdity of Satan fighting against Satan and explains that a kingdom divided against itself cannot stand.

As we follow Jesus, we may also be wrongly accused and ridiculed, questioned and misunderstood. Our initiatives and plans may be rejected. But because we work for God, it is God whom we have to please with our actions. And we have to stay close to Jesus.

With Jesus on our side, we can overcome sin and Satan. With Jesus, we will be united; we will not fall and fail.

Do we take Jesus as the source of our strength and the solid foundation of our life?

Do we hold on to Jesus when storms and setbacks beset us?
