Jesus Clean's House

And Jesus entered the temple and drove out all who sold and bought in the temple, and he overturned the tables of the money-changers and the seats of those who sold pigeons. He said to them, “It is written, ‘My house shall be called a house of prayer,’ but you make it a den of robbers.”
-Matthew 21:12-13

Angry Jesus is angry. Throughout the gospels Jesus was patient with adulterers, tax collectors, and roman soldiers. While he occasionally got short with judgmental religious leaders we see a new side of Jesus in the temple. He is outraged. Jesus does not indulge folks who place barriers between God and man. Jesus came to remove every barrier between God and man.

Challenge: I don't have a challenge for you today. Enjoy your day as one redeemed, knowing that God loves you, watches over you, and will never let anything come between you and him.
