(Matthew 21:1-17)
On Palm Sunday, Jesus was welcomed into Jerusalem with shouts of celebration – but then Jesus immediately entered the Temple and began to cleanse it.  In our lives as Christians we have to move beyond the celebratory aspects of worship and enter the consecration of worship.  Since the Bible tells us that we are the Temple of the Holy Spirit, we should expect Jesus to work to cleanse our Temple (ourselves) of any idol, sin, attitude, behavior, or pattern of thinking that detracts from our faith in God.
