Tree and Temple

BuildMyChurch-iTunesCover

Reading: Mark 11

Key Verse: Mark 11:12-17

Mark links the events of the cursing of the fig tree, with Jesus over-turning the tables of the money changes in the temple. The fig tree in full leaf should have had some small eatable nodules which indicated that figs would grow on the tree later. No nodules meant the tree although showed every sign of life in its leaves, was actually barren and useless.

Israel did not exist for own benefit but to bear witness to other nations. But true worship had been replaced with formal legalism, the trappings of which actually prevented the Gentiles from coming and worshiping God as the court of the Gentiles was all crowded out with stalls. with Jesus’ actions in the temple he was judging the temple worship as fruitless and in effect closing it down.

The church today continues to exist for the benefit of everyone outside the church. If we lose our reason for being then we also will not escape God’s hand of judgement. Where a church fellowship does not reach out and welcome in, then it will be allowed to wither and die.

Sermon Points:
A: Was Jesus angry at commercialism?
B: God’s Word is divinely ordered
C: Fig Tree acted out parable of temple worship being declared as dead
D: Reach out and welcome in, or wither and die.
