《Today’s spiritual meditation》: “To those who sold doves he said, ‘Get these out of here! Stop turning my Father’s house into a market!’” (John 2:16)
Meditation one: If Jesus were to come to your church today, would you really think Him to like to take a seat? Or is there actually an anxious moaning in His heart. Why? Because He sees that the Father should greatly to be praised in the temple, instead He is trod, blasphemed, and exploited by people. The wrath of the Lord Jesus reveals that He is the Holy and the righteous Lord.
Meditation two: What is your purpose to be in a Church? Is it to worship God, or to find a friend? Is it to glorify God, or is it a good place to gain something for yourself? If you treat the church as a social or trading site, your worship at the church is only a superficial ordinance and is meaningless.
Prayer: Thank You God, You granted me a home for my soul on earth – the church, and let me learn how to live a heavenly life. Churches are facing many challenges such as Satan’s attack, ruining, and division. Please make the light of Your spirit shine on me and the entire church so that the Church will be filled with adoration, praise, hail, and the sound of prayer, rather than the din of noise, bazaar, accusation, and complaint. Lord, I do not ask what the church has done for me, but what I have done for the Church of God. I pray in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.
