His disciples remembered that it was written, “Zeal for your house will consume me.” The Jews then said to him, “What sign can you show us for doing this?” Jesus answered them, “Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up.” The Jews then said, “This temple has been under construction for forty-six years, and will you raise it up in three days?” But he was speaking of the temple of his body. After he was raised from the dead, his disciples remembered that he had said this, and they believed the scripture and the word that Jesus had spoken.
Holy God, thank You for keeping Your promises. I am grateful for the ways that You have shown me Your power and love over and over again. Today, I pray that You help me be filled with a devotion that makes it clear to others that You are my number one priority. Guide me to reorient my life in such a way that You are clearly first. May I believe Your word so that it shapes my actions and choices today. Strengthen me to find time to explore the Bible with a renewed passion and conviction. Amen.
