Then he entered the temple and began to drive out those who were selling things there; and he said, ‘It is written,“My house shall be a house of prayer”; but you have made it a den of robbers.’ Luke 19:45-46
In order for us to be useful to God, we must be cleansed. We are saved to be His instruments of righteousness and not to be tools of wickedness.
God provides for us the avenues to purity. He is aware of our predicament and our temptations so He did not leave us without recourse. Repentance scrubs the temple clean.
What have you allowed to pollute the temple of your life? It is to be God’s dwelling place. But is it unfit because you have allowed it to become a den for that which robs you of holiness?
Repent and be cleansed. Let God restore the temple to be His House of Prayer; His House of Worship; His House of Service; His House of Love.
