Gospel: JN 2:13-25
Jesus Is On Fire!
He made a whip out of cords and drove them all out of the temple area, with the sheep and oxen, and spilled the coins of the money changers and overturned their tables. Jesus is on fire not because of his anger but because of His devotion, as written in Psalm "My devotion to your Temple burns in me like a fire".
What is God's temple by the way? Saint Paul said, we ourselves are God's temple. Like Jesus, are we on fire to clean and purify this temple?
Today, we are invited to renew our hearts and let Jesus reign in us, destroy the old and Jesus will raise it up. Jesus knows us. To whom can we trust more this life we have but to the one who understands us better than ourselves, Jesus?
