Exodus 20:1-171 Corinthians 1:18-25 • John 2:13-22
We are the Seventh Day, the day of completion, the day of rest, time of pause, sabbatical. The time of pause, God spoke to Moses, through the ten commandments.
In the past we hear the story of the trees of life and knowledge.
At Sinai and today we meet life and knowledge.
It is beyond moral principles, live before God, live with each other.
Love God, love neighbour, love self.
The time of pause it is written, stand back, look again, take divine action.
Demonstrate God’s power in the paradox of powerlessness and project salvation.
The time of pause, believe the word Jesus had spoken.
Cleansing the temple, confront the signs, grasp grace and truth, find identity as disciple.
Be the renewed living temple, glimpse, challenge, seek, think, the whole story.
Be renewed open the door and the way of the temple
