Temple Cleansed

   “In the Temple, He found the merchants selling oxen, sheep, and doves; also the                     moneychangers sitting there. Then He made a whip of cords and drove them all out…”           – John 2:14-15

Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a right spirit within me…”

This week, as I remember the events leading up to the crucifixion, I reflect on how Christ “cleansed the temple”of moneychangers and how, because of His love, and by His blood, we too can be made clean and renewed by His Holy Spirit.

“He Watches Over You”

“I will lift up my eyes to the mountains — from where does my help come?”

“My help comes from ADONAI,  Maker of heaven and earth.

He will not let your foot slip.

Your keeper will not slumber.

Behold, the Keeper of Israel

neither slumbers nor sleeps.

ADONAI is your keeper. ADONAI is your shadow at your right hand.

The sun will not strike you by day, nor the moon by night.

ADONAI will protect you from all evil.

He will guard your life.

ADONAI will watch over your coming and your going

From this time forth and forever more.”

Psalm 121  –Tree of Life Version

“Hosanna, Please Save!”

It’s very timely, and interesting too, to know that the Hebrew  word for Hosanna is Hoshiana which means “Please save!”

And so, this Palm Sunday, as we remember what Christ has done for us, we can again say:

“LORD please save!”

“Hosanna in the Highest!”

“Blessed is He who comes in the Name of the LORD!”

Matthew 21:9

God Will Take Care Of You

“Be not dismayed whatever betide,

God will take care of you.

Beneath His wings of love abide,

God will take care of you.”

“He will cover you with His feathers and under His wings will you find refuge. His faithfulness is body armor and shield.” – Psalm 91:4

No Power of Hell

“No guilt in life, No fear in death,

This is the power of Christ in me

From life’s first cry to final breath,

Jesus commands my destiny

No power of hell, no scheme of man

Can ever pluck me from His hand

Till He returns or calls me home

Here in the power of Christ I’ll stand.”

Song- “In Christ Alone” – By Getty and Townsend – Sung by Adrienne Liesching
