I Am the Sign of the Covenant (#816, Lent 3)

Fr. Joel Homilies

Third Sunday of Lent (Year B) • On the mountain God gives Moses instructions for right living and right worship. The Israelites offer right worship to the true God first in the tabernacle and then in the Temple of Jerusalem. Jesus now enters this temple and proclaims that the time for the temple is over. The temple is being replaced with the Body of Christ. You and I are members of the Body of Christ. When you follow the commandments and live your purpose, you are a sign of the covenant.

(4 Mar 2018)

Point to Ponder: Meditate for a moment on being a Temple of the Holy Spirit.

Point to Discuss: How can you offer right worship to the true God? Talk to a friend about what it means to worship God and how you offer sacrifice.

Point for Action: In prayer today, speak to Jesus and give him permission to cleanse the temple of your body.
