Walking with Jesus through Hard Times, Part VI

Jesus was zealous for true worship, in the temple then and in our hearts now. Just as He turned over tables then so His Spirit is like a fire, clearing our hearts and lives of false worship so we can worship the true and living God. Just as Jesus’ zeal consumed Him, so He gives us zeal to serve, love and reach others.

  • Scripture used: I Corinthians 3:10-16; Luke 19:41-48
