The House of the King

The House of the King

Good morning and welcome to our time of worship here at Chapel City Church. We gather together for worship, but how do we determine what that is or what it looks like? In some respects, worship is defined very clearly in God’s word. When his people gather, they sing, they pray, they study the scriptures, and they celebrate things like communion and baptism. But we also know that worship is not simply about the things that we do. Worship is driven by a heart response to God. That is true for us, and it was true for Israel in the time of Christ. As we move forward in Matthew 21, we come to a familiar passage where Jesus cleanses the temple. But why did he drive away the sellers and money changers? What connections does he make to what the prophets have written? And how does all of this point to who he is as the promised Messiah? We would love to talk with you, to pray with you, or to answer any questions that you might have.

And Jesus entered the temple and drove out all who sold and bought in the temple, and he overturned the tables of the money-changers and the seats of those who sold pigeons. He said to them, “It is written, ‘My house shall be called a house of prayer,’ but you make it a den of robbers.

Matthew 21:12-13
