Write the Vision, Watch it Happen

“Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, so he may run that reads it.

For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie:

though it tarries, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not delay.”

Habakkuk 2:2-3

Temple Cleansed

This is holy week, and each day this week, I’d planned to post a scripture or quote about this very special time, but today, after posting the verse on “Jesus The Cornerstone”, I thought about of how Jesus cleansed the temple, and I wanted to write on something more…  I started thinking about how, once we commit our lives to Christ, our bodies become the temple of the Holy Spirit.

David prayed in Psalm 51 saying, “Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a right spirit within me.” He asked the LORD to come in and cleanse his temple… (Create in me a clean heart), and once his temple, was cleansed, he wanted the LORD to renew a right spirit within him.

This week, as I remember the events leading up to the crucifixion, I reflect on how Christ “cleansed the temple”, and how, because of His love, and by His blood, I too have been made clean, and by His Holy Spirit, a right spirit is renewed within me.

Thank You, Lord Jesus.
