BOXED UP RELIGION

“We heard Him say, ‘I will destroy this temple made with hands, and in three days I will build another made without hands’” (Mark 14:58).

While we understand Jesus’ statement regarding the temple as a reference to himself and the coming resurrection, his opponents would twist the words and use them against him. Such is the nature of the religious establishment, who seek to “box up” the work of God and their own pietistic performance to a comfortable, predictable, physical structure. Faith on the other hand, is more imaginative, having no desire to place limitations upon the One who said, “Behold, I am making all things new” (Revelation 21:5).
