Greater than the Temple

Matthew 12:6 "But I say to you that something greater than the temple is here.”

Some people are very pious and they would say,” I will wear my new dress to church first and only then wear it elsewhere”, good thought; however, do you lift your little finger for that church? Do you serve in any area of the church?  People who talk about being religious in church attendance do not bother about church activities, they rush in and dash out of church, but still speak high of ‘CHURCH ATTENDANCE.’ God would one day ask “did you serve my House? ‘Any Answer???

The elderly aunty would lift her hands very high during worship, so high that it would reach and touch heaven, but ‘THIS – so called aunty with high bakthi’ would go home and curse the dishes cooked by her daughter-in-law, she would gossip about her own daughter-in-law and make her cry everyday. Jesus looks at such aunties today and says: I AM GREATER THAN THE TEMPLE.(Matthew 12:6) Repent! The brother playing keyboard in the church, had watched movies the whole night on Netflix and now he is inside the church, Jesus looks at him and says, 'I am greater than all that you do, give me your heart first.'

The church is adorned with expensive piece of decorations, high tech  and what not; however, the congregation are fighting, quarrelling, gossiping and tearing each other apart, the Lord looks at such churches and he says: I am greater, give your heart to me to start with… Stop fighting, stop grabbing the pulpit..to show your skills.  We are turning away souls that need Jesus with our spiritual pride, arrogance and smug attitude.  There are none to wish and care for the broken hearts that come to Church, people are busy flaunting their latest mobiles and sarees.  Anybody listening?

There is a group that would scurry to grab the front row in the church, and would loudly sing and echo AMEN to the pastor’s sermons, but they are the ones who would slander the family of the pastor and his children.  God looks at such hypocrites and says today: THE GREATER ONE IS HERE! Do you at least look at me when you walk into the church???

Staff inside the church, who wear big badges around their neck and who walk with lifted heads around the church, would be actually fighting and pumping fists at each other.  The hostile atmosphere stinks! Ezekiel 8:7-9 "Then he brought me to the entry of the courtyard. When I looked I saw a hole in the wall... Then he said to me, 'Go in and see the hateful, evil things they are doing here.'
