38. “Teacher,” said John, “we saw a man driving out demons in your name and we told him to stop, because he was not one of us.”
39. “Do not stop him,” Jesus said. “No one who does a miracle in my name can in the next moment say anything bad about me, 40. for whoever is not against us is for us. 41. I tell you the truth, anyone who gives you a cup of water in My name because you belong to Christ will certainly not lose his reward.
No matter what anyone does in the name of Jesus,
He honors them,
because we/they belong to Him!
