During Jesus’ first trip to Jerusalem, his first action after his first public miracle was to purge the temple from filthy lucre with a scourge. Jesus shows a jealousy over his bride and the purity of the church. Paul displayed a godly jealousy over the church desiring to present her as a chaste virgin to Christ. In our culture of lukewarm Laodicean discipleship, we need to repent, get zealous, and heat up in service to Jesus Christ.
