Mark 3:22-30 Reflection
As Christians, we are believers in a merciful, compassionate, and loving Jesus our Savior. Yet, the sly fox of the other side, has been and continues to disrupt our ability to unite in these principals throughout our history. It is time we cast aside our differences in order that we might receive and reflect the glorious healing light that the Lord desires for our entire community. How else can those who newly enter God’s sphere, recognize an eternal Christ?
Mark 3 New Revised Standard Version Catholic Edition (NRSVCE)
22 And the scribes who came down from Jerusalem said, “He has Beelzebul, and by the ruler of the demons he casts out demons.” 23 And he called them to him, and spoke to them in parables, “How can Satan cast out Satan? 24 If a kingdom is divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand. 25 And if a house is divided against itself, that house will not be able to stand. 26 And if Satan has risen up against himself and is divided, he cannot stand, but his end has come. 27 But no one can enter a strong man’s house and plunder his property without first tying up the strong man; then indeed the house can be plundered.
28 “Truly I tell you, people will be forgiven for their sins and whatever blasphemies they utter; 29 but whoever blasphemes against the Holy Spirit can never have forgiveness, but is guilty of an eternal sin”— 30 for they had said, “He has an unclean spirit.”
Thank you for meditating on this Gospel reading and considering this reflection on Mark 3:22-30.
