And Jesus went into the temple of GOD, and cast out all them that sold and bought in the temple, and overthrew the tables of the moneychangers, and the seats of them that sold doves, And said unto them, It is written, My house shall be called the house of prayer; but ye have made it a den of thieves. And the blind and the lame came to him in the temple; and He healed them. And when the chief priests and scribes saw the wonderful things that He did, and the children crying in the temple, and saying, Hosanna to the Son of David; they were sore displeased, And said unto him, Hearest thou what these say? And Jesus saith unto them, Yea; have ye never read, Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings thou hast perfected praise? (Mat 21:12-16)
Our Lord is very zealous for true worship and the honour that is due Him. He seeks worshipers to worship Him in Spirit and in Truth. Knowing the hearts, minds, and motives of those who were simply using religion for personal gain, He cleared the temple of those who made merchandise of the people of GOD. He also corrected those who sought to silence those who were giving Him the worship due His Name. Jesus Christ, GOD the Son, who is the Son of GOD, wants people to come to Him, to surrender to Him on His terms, and be healed. Healed, not only of the ills of this life, but of their sIn and spiritual wickedness that has already condemned them.
He came not to condemn the world, for it was already under condemnation, but that through Him and faith in His finished and perfect work on the Cross of Calvary all those that believe might be saved. He is the Way, the Truth, and the Life; no man comes to GOD the Father except through Him. Repentance and Faith in Him lead to forgiveness of our sins and Salvation. Those that have experienced the new birth, and are complete in Him, are free from guilt and sin, and have Liberty to live as He would have us live, in Him, through Him, and by His Spirit within us.
We are free, not to sin, or turn our houses of worship into marketplaces, but to seek the One true GOD; Father, Son, and Spirit, and know Him and His grace, mercy and love. We are free from the cares of this world, for He cares for us, and therefore can share in the ministry of reconciliation, as His ambassadors, to this lost and dying world. We are free to minister to the hurting around us, that they may see Jesus in us, the Hope of Glory. We are free from the law of sIn and death, and so we can and do disciple one another in the Word so that all may grow in grace. We are free to go and preach the Gospel, and as we go, share the Good News of Jesus Christ so that those that hear and believe may have life in His Name.
For GOD is not willing that any should perish, but that all would come to repentance and the knowledge of the Truth. Jesus loves you and wants to establish a covenant relationship with you that is real and personal. Surrender to Him on His terms and He will give you a brand new life of discipleship and fellowship with Him that is abundant and everlasting. GOD calls you to trust Him and what He has already done for you to pay your sIn debt. He has provided the only way of reconciliation with GOD with forgiveness and Salvation through Jesus Christ, the Son of GOD who is GOD the Son, to give you a new life in Christ. Turn away from yourself and your sIn and turn to Him alone for eternal Life, now and always.
