    Jesus threw out those who were buying and selling right in the temple. The temple was to be a place for spiritual things and not a place of commerce.

    Another example of the power of Jesus. Verse 2 says "..colt tied whereon never any man sat" and then verse 7 "..and he sat upon him" meaning the colt. A donkey-colt that has not be broken to ride would not have allowed Jesus to ride. Although this is a small point compared to the many healings Jesus performed, I am still amazed.

    I am trying my best to forgive, but there is always something that creeps in to try and thwart my efforts. God, please help me to completely forgive, in Jesus' mighty name, Amen.

    Without forgiving our brothers and sisters who trespass against us we will not receive forgiveness from our father. Any gift that we offer in the altar will not be accepted unless we forgive. We must forgive before we ask forgiveness. Jesus is faithful to those who diligently seeking his forgiveness and repentance. Let's give thanks to the blood of Jesus and praise him this is more than enough
