Monday of Holy Week

As we trace and travel the rode with Jesus we’ll find that on this day – there were no major feasts. As a matter of fact, most of this week Jesus would leave Jerusalem each evening – and yes – be found sleeping in Bethany.

On this particular day on His way back to the Holy City of Jerusalem – He was hungry and came across a barren fig tree in which He cursed for not barring fruit – which followed by Him entering the Temple and finding the money changers on holy ground, and no – it wasn’t a pretty site. He was so upset that they were using HisĀ  “house of prayer” as a den for robbers that He began to overturn each and every table He could get His hands on.

I can’t imagine what was going on in His mind – the frustration of what was happening all around Him, while yes – knowing what the week ahead held for Him, yet – He had to keep moving forward.

So yes – as we continue to reflect on this day and week ahead we’ll find – even though we’re more familiar with His healing and blessings rather than His cursing – that story of that Fig Tree is so important for us today.

For yes sweet friends – just as the people of old were held accountable for bringing forth fruit – we as well are to live our lives to reflect that of Jesus, and yes – although He came primarily as a loving healing Savior for those who accept Him – He was also called to be a just Judge.

And as we live our lives – we too must look at every situation we encounter with a loving heart that is – just, right and fair – for yes – we are His people.

We are loved by love Himself. He loves us big and He loves us strong, and yes – love wins period

“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law: Galatians 5:22-23
