Scripture Union SU Daily Guide 1st August 2021 Outline:

Buying and selling in the temple (v.12) was to enable worshippers perform their sacrifices. Why then was Jesus annoyed with the sellers? No doubt, the money changers were having a field day, charging exorbitant rates for the temple coin and high price for the sacrificial animal (dove or lamb). The temple coin was the only acceptable currency in the temple.

In our days the church of God in many places has been turned into a money-making institution. Some leaders use all sorts of tricks to extort money from members, often for wrong use. One wonders what the Lord would do today were He to visit our congregations! What should we do to ensure that the worship we bring to God is always acceptable in His sight?

We are called to bear fruit for the Kingdom of God, and we risk being thrown aside if we fail to do this. We need to ask ourselves whether this is true of our lives. Jesus’ response to the disciples is a lesson that situations can change as a result of praying with faith.

Practice/Word Application
• And so: Our body is the temple of God the Holy Spirit. What are you allowing to occupy it?
• Any new insight or reinforcement of what you already know?

Closing Prayer
• Lord, purify your church and cleanse her of materialism and idolatry. • Thank God for the death of Jesus Christ on the cross, and His resurrection for the remission of the sins of mankind: the only assurance of eternity with God.

Offer a prayer of faith in line with
Psalms 57-59; Acts 21:18-40
