Gospel: John 2:13–22
We are God's temple.
In the Gospel today, Jesus shows the zeal he has for our life, for we are God’s temple. God wants to dwell within us but oftentimes He is unable to do so because we have made our hearts a place for sin, a place for greed and selfishness, a home for our material and worldly desires.
Jesus invites us today to identify the areas in our lives that are not living according to the truth of the Gospel.
Let us ask for forgiveness to the Lord for those times when we make our hearts a marketplace preoccupied with a lot of worldly things leaving no place and space for Him to dwell. Lord, cleanse my heart with your love and mercy.
