Scripture: John 2:13-22:
13 The Passover of the Jews was at hand, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem. 14 In the temple he found those who were selling oxen and sheep and pigeons, and the money-changers at their business. 15 And making a whip of cords, he drove them all, with the sheep and oxen, out of the temple; and he poured out the coins of the money-changers and overturned their tables. 16 And he told those who sold the pigeons, "Take these things away; you shall not make my Father's house a house of trade." 17 His disciples remembered that it was written, "Zeal for thy house will consume me." 18 The Jews then said to him, "What sign have you to show us for doing this?" 19 Jesus answered them, "Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up." 20 The Jews then said, "It has taken forty-six years to build this temple, and will you raise it up in three days?" 21 But he spoke of the temple of his body. 22 When therefore he was raised from the dead, his disciples remembered that he had said this; and they believed the scripture and the word which Jesus had spoken.
Meditation on Today's Scripture:
Jesus replied that the sign God would give would be Jesus' death on the cross and resurrection from the tomb: "Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up."Jesus was explaining his death and resurrection to them. But the Jews did not understand that the temple Jesus referred to was his own body. The “tent of his body” had to be destroyed to open the way to the attendance of God for us. Through his death and resurrection, Jesus not only reconciles us with God, but he loads us with his Holy Spirit and makes each one of us as temples of the living God. God's word makes clear to our minds and purifies our hearts that we may offer God fitting worship and enjoy his company both now and forever. Do we burn with zeal for the His house? Loving Infant Jesus, you open wide the door of your Heavenly Father’s house and you bid us to enter boldly that we may worship in spirit and truth. Help us to draw near to your throne of mercy with thankfulness and joy.
