So Jesus called them over to him and began to speak to them in parables: “How can Satan drive out Satan? If a kingdom is divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand. If a house is divided against itself, that house cannot stand. And if Satan opposes himself and is divided, he cannot stand; his end has come. Mark 3:23-26 NIV
Jesus wanted to show the teachers of the law and the rest of the crowd present how foolish and ridiculous the comment about how He cast demons turned out to be. He did so without degrading. He just wanted people to see the foolishness of the comment. Jesus’ comment more than likely was taken wisely only by those who had an open heart. Some have a heart that is totally closed. No matter what you tell them, they will not believe the truth. It is sad that so many are stubborn. When we share the Good News we should pray often that hearts will be open to the Word, that Christ may come show them the wrong in their ways. Pray often that the Holy Spirit help you effectively to share the Word. We are called to share the Word of God.
