Jesus Is...Passionate (John 2:13-25)Pastor Joe Sanders, March 13, 2011
Part of the Jesus Is... series, preached at a Sunday Morning service
We were created with passions because we reflect the image of God and he is passionate. As Christ began the public portion of his life and ministry, he displayed some of his passions in a very public and forceful manner. Since we are passionate and God is passionate, wouldn't it make sense that we would want to know what God's passions are? Wouldn't we want to know them and embrace them and adopt them as our own? Jesus is passionate and what he is passionate about might just surprise you! If you're tired of spending your passions on things, people, places, events, etc, that disappoint you or seem to be short of deserving your passions, listen and discover what Christ revealed about God's passions. It could bring you freedom from false passions and fulfillment in true passions!

13And the Jews' passover was at hand, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem, 14And found in the temple those that sold oxen and sheep and doves, and the changers of money sitting: 15And when he had made a scourge of small cords, he drove them all out of the temple, and the sheep, and the oxen; and poured out the changers' money, and overthrew the tables; 16And said unto them that sold doves, Take these things hence; make not my Father's house an house of merchandise. 17And his disciples remembered that it was written, The zeal of thine house hath eaten me up. 18Then answered the Jews and said unto him, What sign shewest thou unto us, seeing that thou doest these things? 19Jesus answered and said unto them, Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up. 20Then said the Jews, Forty and six years was this temple in building, and wilt thou rear it up in three days? 21But he spake of the temple of his body. 22When therefore he was risen from the dead, his disciples remembered that he had said this unto them; and they believed the scripture, and the word which Jesus had said. 23Now when he was in Jerusalem at the passover, in the feast day, many believed in his name, when they saw the miracles which he did. 24But Jesus did not commit himself unto them, because he knew all men, 25And needed not that any should testify of man: for he knew what was in man.
