Mark 9:38-40 Reflection – Unify around Jesus’s Love

Mark 9:38-40 Reflection ~

I am a joy filled Christian baptized in the name of The Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Jesus Christ is my Savior. I have had to sacrifice much because of my belief. There may be differences between us because I am Catholic. For example I believe in the real presence of Jesus and pray with Mary. My love of Jesus makes me not just tolerant but breaks down walls, joining me purposefully to all of creation. I pray for mankind to leave behind dissimilarities and unify around Jesus’s love?

Another Exorcist

38 John said to him, “Teacher, we saw someone casting out demons in your name, and we tried to stop him, because he was not following us.” 39 But Jesus said, “Do not stop him; for no one who does a deed of power in my name will be able soon afterward to speak evil of me. 40 Whoever is not against us is for us.

Thank you for meditating on this daily Gospel reading and considering this reflection on Mark 9:38-40.
