ACCEPT JESUS PEOPLE Jesus told His apprentices "WHOEVER IS NOT AGAINST US IS FOR US" [Mk 9:40 NI], encouraging them to be accepting of everyone who believes in Jesus and ministers in His name. Many followers of Jesus today treat other followers of Jesus with less respect because they are not part of their religious group. Jesus went on to teach them "ANYONE WHO GIVES YOU A CUP OF WATER IN MY NAME BECAUSE YOU BELONG TO THE MESSIAH WILL CERTAINLY NOT LOSE THEIR REWARD" [Mk 9:41 NI] indicating that others will be blessed by helping everyone who belongs to Jesus. We need to be encouraging to everyone who follows Jesus without being distracted by the manmade religious beliefs they also follow. Remember Jesus is the "JUDGE" [Jn 5:27], not us. Do you accept everyone who belongs to Jesus? Home, BasicSubjects, Scriptures
