Mark 3:20-35

Jesus responds forcefully to the accusation that he is possessed. He uses two parables about kingdoms and houses divided to show that it makes no sense that he who has the power to drive out evil would be an agent of that same evil. It is by God’s Spirit that he speaks and acts.

Adam and Eve were created in Original Holiness and fell into Original Sin. May we, by the power of the Holy Spirit, overcome sin and be all that God wills us to be.
