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.
