The Temple cleaning. When Jesus comes to the temple He shares how the temple is His Father’s house and it is a place of worship. He shares His wisdom and heals the blind. Jesus is presenting Himself as the Messiah. He is cleaning the temple as the first sign to show how we need to cleanse ourselves. The second cleansing comes this week before His crucifixion, Jesus empties Himself for us.
Reflect: Think of what Jesus was really asking and what do you need to be cleansed of? Think of what the Isaiah reading in the old testament is revealing to us.
Write: Write a prayer for today and this week about emptying yourself to our Lord.
