Scriptural Inspirations: Business of the Church

The Business of the Church

Despite what it might appear to be, the church is not s marketplace or a fund raising vehicle. The church is the house of the Lord. Every now and then, we need to be reminded.

John‬ ‭2:13-16 NKJV‬‬
“Now the Passover of the Jews was at hand, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem. And He found in the temple those who sold oxen and sheep and doves, and the money changers doing business. When He had made a whip of cords, He drove them all out of the temple, with the sheep and the oxen, and poured out the changers’ money and overturned the tables. And He said to those who sold doves, “Take these things away! Do not make My Father’s house a house of merchandise!”

Be Blessed!
