Matthew 12:25-28. Divided Kingdom 21 Apr 2023
Mat 12:25 Knowing what was in their minds he said to them,
'Every kingdom divided against itself is heading for ruin;
and no town, no household divided against itself can last.
26 Now if Satan drives out Satan, he is divided against himself;
so how can his kingdom last?
27 And if it is through Beelzebul that I drive devils out,
through whom do your own experts drive them out?
They shall be your judges, then.
28 But if it is through the Spirit of God that I drive out devils,
then be sure that the kingdom of God has caught you unawares.
What if our church is divided? Many say: 'We are one in the Spirit.'. For me that just sounds like an excuse. If I face division in my house, I believe, I have work to do.
Jesus, teach me how to deal with divisions in my 'kingdoms.'
