John 2:16  And said unto them that sold doves, Take these things hence; make not my Father's house an house of merchandise.

Our text for today is taken from the instance where the Lord Jesus discovered the House of God being abused by some.  This scripture has been misused by many legalist.  It never ceases to amaze me how some folk are so rigid that they live their life miserable.  But we also don’t want to make light of this scripture.  The setting here is a market place set up in the church.  At this time, Jesus had not been sacrificed upon Calvary.  The Jews are still operating under Old Testament law.  Animal sacrifice is still required for sin offerings.  These people have set up a market at the church for filthy lucre sake.  They are selling animals for sacrifice.  As people would come to the temple to offer sin offerings, these people had booths set up with animals for sale.  Can you imagine what a disgrace Jesus has discovered?  The temple grounds are trashed.  Animal manure is everywhere.  People talking loudly back and forth trying to make deals.  Probably campfires smoking and many other disgraceful things taking place in and around the temple.  The scriptures tell us that the Lord Jesus makes a whip and drives them and their animals out.  He is aggravated to say the least.  He turns over their tables, pours out their money and drives out their livestock.  All while heralding a sermon at them.  He scolds them for making a mart of the House of God.  This is one reason I am personally against church yard sales.  There is nothing tackier and more disgraceful than for the members of the church to haul all their junk up to the House of God and dump it off in the church yard and post a homemade sign by the road advertising it.  Now don’t get me wrong, I love going to yard sales, estate sales and auctions, but they all have their place and the House of God is not the place.  This action spoken of here in the scripture is misleading many passing by.  Church yard sales are the same.  It tells lost society that the church is struggling and their God is broke.  It is disgraceful.  Jesus don’t like it!  He was angry.  And amazingly, He was angry and sinned not.  We must respect the House of God.  We must teach our children to respect the House of God.  Much of the time I am amazed on Monday mornings and Thursday mornings.  As I walk through the sanctuary it is easy to discover who has respect for the sanctuary and who does not.  Candy wrappers, used tissues, pews shoved out of place and baby snacks tell on us!  We must respect the Temple of God.  How we treat the Church is what we think of God.  Actually, how we respect the House of God proves our level of spirituality.  There is nothing wrong with eating a peppermint or giving the baby a snack to keep them quiet, but teach them to not trash the Church.  And take time to clean up your pig pen before leaving.  Yes, I am on the soap box!  But I am trying to make a very important point that we must respect God’s House.  Jesus took time to make this point valid and understandable as He cracked His whip.  Dear friend, let’s respect the place of worship.  This is where we worship the King of kings, the one who saved our wretched soul from Hell, the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.  Amen.

John 3:30  He must increase, but I must decrease.

It is human nature to desire to be the winner.  We naturally strive to be on top.  The flesh will always naturally defend itself.  This is the instinct of survival.  If we are outside and a lightening storm blows in, we naturally take cover.  This is survival instinct.  Along the same line is our winner instinct.  Some folks are more competitive than others, but all of us wish to win.  No one naturally wishes to lose.  When out team is on the field, we have an inner desire that overwhelms us.  We want to win!  My friend, this is a natural desire of human nature.  This is the survival instinct of the flesh.  This instinct began thousands of years ago when man fell to sin and the enemy.  Ever since then we have been fighting to live.  There in the garden was the tree of life.  When man fell to sin, he was ran out of the garden and forbidden to have access to the tree of life.  Satan has been nipping at our heel ever since.  But there is a remedy!  On a hill far away stood an old rugged cross, and on that cross a Saviour died and shed the redeeming blood for our failure.  His blood is remission for our sin.  It is this blood that is our survival.  Jesus’ blood gives us access to life once again.  It is through this blood we can now be a winner.  Our text verse is a verse that reminds us that in Him we are a winner but outside Him we are fighting a losing battle.  The more of Him the more we win.  The less of Him the more we lose.  We must make much of Jesus.  He is our only hope!  He must increase!  And we must decrease.  That natural instinct to win causes the flesh to strive to be on top, but all the time we are falling back.  The only way to success is if the Lord Jesus is on top.  He must increase.  We must decrease.  From the time we rise out of bed each day till we lay down at night, it must be about Him.  When we sleep at night, it must be about Him.  Our daily actions must be about Him.  Our thoughts must be about Him.  Our decisions must be about Him.  Our future planning must be about Him.  It is Him!  We must make our every moment of life about Him.  We live because of Him.  We will inherit everlasting life because of Him.  Our every thought should be built upon Him.  My friend, do you want to be a winner?  Then make it about Him.  He must increase and we must decrease.  It is all about Him.  Amen.   

For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God
Eph 2:8.
