Are You Connected?

Are You Connected?

March 11

JOHN 2:13-22

There was an expectation when I was a teenager that I was going to church not just to fellowship with brothers and sisters in Christ, but also to have a divine encounter with my Creator and Savior. The size of the buildings did not matter—what mattered was his presence. Over the years, I realized that I needed to be intentional in cultivating God’s presence.

In today’s passage, Jesus found businesspeople focused on their own business and drove them all from the temple courts.

Is there any unforgiveness, grudges, bitterness, and anger in your heart? Too often, I have seen members of the body of Christ being incapable of connecting on a more in-depth level because of the hardness of their hearts.

Holy Spirit, remove anything in my heart that disconnects me from the body of Christ and prevents me from enjoying your sweet presence. AMEN.
