Day ONE Devotional: the TEMPLE!

This is the FIRST of FIVE devotions for EASTER WEEK!

What was the FIRST thing Jesus did after the TRIUMPHANT Entry into Jerusalem?

Then Jesus went into the temple of God and drove out all those who bought and sold in the temple, and overturned the tables of the money changers and the seats of those who sold doves. (Matthew 21:12 NKJV) 

First: Jesus CLEANSED the TEMPLE.  He drove out the money changers.  This may seem unusual that the peaceful and humble Jesus would, as one verse says:

       “When He had made a whip of cords, He drove them all out of the temple…” (John 2:15 NKJV)

When it came to the HOUSE of God, the TEMPLE, Jesus was SERIOUS!

And He said to them, ‘It is written, 'My house shall be called a house of prayer,' but you have made it a 'den of thieves.' Matthew 21:13 NKJV 

Second: Jesus DECLARED the house of PRAYER.  Prayer is to be a vital part of our lives of faith!  Prayer should be the first thing we do to begin the day & the last thing we do at night.

Then the blind and the lame came to Him in the temple, and He healed them. Matthew 21:14 NKJV 

Third: Jesus HEALED the sick.  Healing must be a normal part of the Christian’s life!  It shouldn’t be UNUSUALHealing & praying for healing should be NATURAL, or shall we say SUPERNATURAL!

So keep your TEMPLE CLEAN.

Maintain a life of PRAYER.

HEALING must be a natural part of the believer’s life!

    Always, Always, Always BE HOPEFUL!

    Always, Always, Always BE HOPEFUL!

    Faith gives SUBSTANCE to the things we hope for (Hebrews 11:1).  That is BASED on the Word of God.

    Proverbs 13:12 tell us that: Hope that is deferred, that is prolonged or delayed, makes the HEART sick.  But when the dream is fulfilled it becomes a TREE of LIFE!

    Finally:

    Hebrews 10:23 (NKJV) Let us hold fast the CONFESSION of our hope without wavering (seize and hold fast and retain without wavering the hope we cherish and confess and our acknowledgement of it -AMP; hold tightly to the hope -CEV; We must continue to hold firmly to our declaration of faith -GW; hold tightly without wavering to the hope we affirm -NLT), for He who promised is faithful.

    (MSG) Let's keep a firm grip on the promises that keep us going. He always keeps his word.

    Keep CONFESSING the WORD, hold tightly the CONFESSION of your HOPE!

    Be blessed!
