You have turned the house of God into a ‘den of thieves.’
From the Gospel according to Luke 19:45-48
Jesus entered the temple area and proceeded to drive out those who were selling things, saying to them, “It is written, My house shall be a house of prayer, but you have made it a den of thieves.” And every day he was teaching in the temple area.
The chief priests, the scribes, and the leaders of the people, meanwhile, were seeking to put him to death, but they could find no way to accomplish their purpose because all the people were hanging on his words.
The gospel of the Lord.
Always with you.
The Lord´s house is our soul, and it must be a house of prayer. A place of intimacy with the Lord. My life depends on that presence of the Lord. He is in the deepest part of me. He is in our marriage, in my acts of love. I just need to keep Him in mind, minute by minute. Lord, may I always have you present.
Applied to married life:
Luke: Hey, thanks for picking me up. I am exhausted.
Sharon: Give thanks to the Lord.
Luke: Yeah, but it was you who came.
Sharon: No, I came by the grace of God. He guides me, acts through me. Give thanks to the Lord, please.
Luke: Thank you, Lord, and thank you for this wonderful wife.
Always with you, always with Him. Praise be to the Lord.
