Cleansing Your Temple

In John 2:13-21, Jesus goes into the temple during the week of Passover and finds cattle, birds, and money changers in the temple courts.  He famously makes a whip from cords and drives the livestock out, flips the tables, and dumps the pots of the money changers.  When asked to show them a sign demonstrating His “right” to do what He did, Jesus stated, “Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up.”  In this message we look at how the cleansing of the temple applies to our own lives and why Jesus has the authority to identify and correct sin in His temple.
