If we are divided, we will not stand!…

12:25 Matthew “Jesus knew their thoughts and said to them, "Every kingdom divided against itself will be ruined, and every city or household divided against itself will not stand.” (NIV)

Jesus healed people and drove out demons. Pharisees said that Jesus must be in partnership with the evil one. Jesus knew their thoughts and shared this powerful insight with them (and with all of us). If loyalties are divided, then there will be failure in that family, community, country, or cause. That is why God made trusting Him to be His first commandment and His constant reminder to His people. If we are not united in Him and in fulfilling His will, then we will fail to accomplish all that He has planned for us. Become united in His love and His grace… then share it!
