Too often, we can crowd Jesus out of our lives with things that have nothing to do with Him. It happened at the temple in Jerusalem. The business of sacrificing became greater than the reality of which the sacrifice was meant to serve.
Jesus cleansed the temple. He drove out the animals and money changers. He refocused the attention to the real sacrifice, Himself. “Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up.” (John 2:19)
Have we held something sacred in our hearts that rivals the Lord Jesus? What needs to be cleansed from our temples? Where are we majoring in the minors?
