In Matthew 21:12-14, on the Monday before his eventual crucifixion on Friday,
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.”
Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own, for you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body.
This sermon asks the important question, in what sort of spiritual condition is your God-given temple? It also prescribes a course of action, using Matthew 21:12-14 as a model, for those of us who need to respond to the reforming power and influence of the Son of God.
