The Lord’s Sanctuary Requires Righteousness: Love of Jesus’s Justice, not Money

Psalm 15

A psalm of David.

Lord, who may dwell in your sacred tent?
Who may live on your holy mountain?

The one whose walk is blameless,
    who does what is righteous,
    who speaks the truth from their heart;
whose tongue utters no slander,
    who does no wrong to a neighbor,
    and casts no slur on others;
who despises a vile person
    but honors those who fear the Lord;
who keeps an oath even when it hurts,
    and does not change their mind;
who lends money to the poor without interest;
    who does not accept a bribe against the innocent.

Whoever does these things will never be shaken.

Psalm 15:1-5

God promises only those who honor the Lord will dwell in His Holy Presence.
Honor includes the interest of the innocent, mercy to the poor, and the name sake of Jesus’s justice, the love of righteousness and not of money.

Greater than the Temple! Mt 12 #2

Jesus Heals on the Sabbath

12 How much more valuable is a man than a sheep! Therefore it is lawful to do good on the Sabbath.”

13 Then Jesus said to the man, “Stretch out your hand.” So he stretched it out, and it was restored to full use, just like the other.

Matthew 12:12

Mercy, not Sacrifice

6 But I tell you that something greater than the temple is here.

7 If only you had known the meaning of ‘I desire mercy, not sacrifice,’ you would not have condemned the innocent.

8 For the Son of Man is Lord of the Sabbath.”

Matthew 12:6-8

Jesus says”I desire mercy, not sacrifice”

What is the meaning of mercy?

Don’t reject Jesus: God’s Gift and atoning sacrifice!
