On Sunday we hear from the Gospel of St John Chapter 2: 13-22 that well known story of Jesus cleansing the Temple at Jerusalem. Jesus clearly had a zero-tolerance policy toward using the representation of God, the temple, as the means to make money. As people from all over the Middle East poured into Jerusalem for the Passover, savvy marketeers set up their wares. Knowing that not everyone could bring animals for sacrifice, the money-changers were more than ready to take advantage of the situation by providing sheep and cattle at inflated prices. The temple looked more like a marketplace than a worship space, and Jesus would have none of it.
Jesus still has zeal for proper worship. As he did in the temple all those centuries ago, Christ rearranges the furniture of our comfortable lives and upsets how things have become. Like an extreme makeover, the Lord overturns tables designed for selfish gain and re-establishes a connection between us and God. He upholds holiness and righteousness so that you and I will have a clean and clear path of relationship with the sovereign God of the universe. Sacred space is important, both as a physical room or building as well as in our own spiritual hearts.
