Mark chapter 3

People say bad things about Jesus

Verses 20-30

Many people were saying bad things about Jesus. Even Jesusí family were saying bad things about him. They should not have said those things. But they did not know the true facts.

Other people were saying bad things for worse reasons. And those people were doing something that was very bad. They were against Godís work. God works by his *Holy Spirit. So these people were speaking against the *Holy Spirit.

Those people said that *Satan was using Jesus. They told people that they must not believe Jesus. *Satan wanted to rule peopleís lives. So they said that Jesus was working on behalf of *Satan. This was a very bad thing to say. And they were very wrong.

Jesus explained that God always does good things. And *Satan always does bad things. God caused the bad *spirits to leave the people. And God was doing a good thing. *Satan did not want this good thing to happen. Nobody chooses to fight against himself. *Satan would not want to fight against his own bad *spirits.

But God was helping his people.
