Time to Clean House!
This week Pastor Greg Laurie begins our series 7 Signs of Jesus with a message called “Time to Clean House!” Together we will take a deep dive in to Jesus turning water into wine, and cleansing of the temple.
Jesus’ first miracle: Water into wine.
Jesus answers our prayers, does what we ask, and comes through for us; but then there are times He comes and cleans house and overturns tables.
- There are things that make God angry.
- God cares about His house.
- If you come to Jesus, He will accept you as you are, but He will not leave you that way.
- Saul of Tarsus was a murdered, but he became a mighty Apostle.
- “Let those who love the Lord hate evil, for He guards the lives of His faithful ones and delivers them from the hand of the wicked.”
- Sometimes we get angry with sinners when we need to be angry with Satan.
- What angered Jesus?
- People being kept from God.
- God gets angry when people are kept from coming to Him.
- The church exists to glorify God, edify the saints, and evangelize to the world.
- “The church is a hospital for sinners, not a museum for saints.” —Abigail Van Buren
- What does Jesus cleansing the Temple have to do with me?
- As part of the new covenant, God now lives in the hearts of His people.
- Paul prayed that “Christ would dwell in our hearts by faith” (Ephesians 3:17).
- The dwelling place of God (the Temple of God) is you!
- Perhaps you have sins that have not been confessed, and vices that have not been confronted.
- Jesus wants access to every room of your house!
- Jesus wants access to every room to clean properly.
- Jesus may overturn a table or two, but when it is done, it will be clean!
- Revival is returning to original condition.
- Jesus knows everything about you.
- Jesus will always reveal Himself to the true seeker; but to the fickle, shallow, and insincere, nothing will happen.
- Jesus Christ is ready to come clean up your life!
