The Lord...restores my soul; he leads me in the paths of righteousness for His name's
sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear
no evil; for You are with me; your rod and Your staff, they comfort me. Psalm 23:3-4
John said to Him, "Teacher, we saw someone casting out demons in Your name, and
we tried to hinder him because he was not following us."
But Jesus said, "Do not hinder him, for there is no one who shall perform a miracle
in My name, and be able soon afterward to speak evil of Me. For he who is not against
us is for us.
"For whoever gives you a cup of water to drink because of your name as followers
of Christ, truly I say to you, he shall not lose his reward.
"And whoever causes one of these little ones who believe to stumble, it would be
better for him if, with a heavy millstone hung around his neck, he had been cast
into the sea." Mark 9:38-42 (NAS)
And from that city many of the Samaritans believed in Him (in Jesus) because of
the word of the woman who testified, "He told me all the things that I have done."
So when the Samaritans came to Him, they were asking Him to stay with them; and
He stayed there two days.
And many more believed because of His word; and they were saying to the woman, "It
is no longer because of what you said that we believe, for we have heard for ourselves
and know that this One is indeed the Savior of the world."
And after the two days He went forth from there into Galilee. For Jesus Himself
testified that a prophet has no honor in his own country. So when He came to Galilee,
the Galileans received Him, having seen all the things that He did in Jerusalem
at the feast; for they themselves also went to the feast. John 4:39-45 (NAS)
