Jn 2:16-17 And said unto them that sold doves, Take these things hence; make not my Father's house an house of merchandise. And his disciples remembered that it was written, The zeal of thine house hath eaten me up. LESSON - Don’t attempt to make the things of God less than what they are. Always remember that God deserves reverence in HIS house of worship. Make sure that your service, worship, dress, and attitude reflect the holiness of God. The purpose of the gospel was reconciliation with a Holy God. Your ultimate goal in life should be to become more like Him and reflect His holiness in every aspect of life.
