ENTER MY HEART (John 2:13-25): 15 March 2009 (Third Sunday of Lent)
Is my heart a temple or a marketplace?
This morning I read about the Cleansing of the Temple, and I can’t help but feel disturbed. Did you really have to get that upset about what you saw in the temple? It’s a little bit frightening to see you like this–driving out people, whip in hand. This expression of anger is a far cry from your usual gentle and patient self, an image we all prefer for obvious reasons.
