(This preaching first appeared on theWord on 22 May 2013)
John said to him, â€œTeacher, we saw someone casting out demons in your name, and we tried to stop him, because he was not following us.â€ But Jesus said, â€œDo not stop him; for no one who does a deed of power in my name will be able soon afterward to speak evil of me. Whoever is not against us is for us.
