THINK ON THIS . . . Holy Week Monday
“And He began to teach and say to them, “Is it not written, ‘My house shall be called a house of prayer for all the nations’? But you have made it a robbers’ den.” The chief priests and the scribes heard this, and began seeking how to destroy Him; for they were afraid of Him, for the whole crowd was astonished at His teaching” (Mark 11:17-18, NASB).
“Now before the Feast of the Passover, Jesus knowing that HIS HOUR HAD COME that He would depart out of this world to the Father, having loved His own who were in the world, He loved them to the end” (John 13:1, NASB).
Mark 11:17-18 is a powerful word imagery of Jesus, The Teacher.
imagery of Jesus, The Teacher. There’s no way anyone would have nodded off during this teaching. I imagine the listeners were wide-eyed and holding their breath as Jesus taught with powerful, strong, and passionate words. The religious leaders were used to being in control and the people assumed what they did and said had to be right. So. It was huge when Jesus succinctly underlined the wrong of what the religious leaders were doing.
It’s not only a word to “them” but a revelation for each one of us: The highest purpose of the with-God life is love. In other words, life is not about religious rules but about relationship with God and one-another through never-ending love.
This moment in the Holy Week is worth thinking on to evaluate what we need to release in order to experience the fulfillment of the highest purpose of living.
Today’s Challenge: Do some spiritual spring cleaning in order to let go of misaligned thoughts, habits, and beliefs in order to live the best life.
