Cleansing: Holy Monday (Question 3)

Cleansing: Holy Monday

What is it that you fear that would make you silence voices of praise? was the second question of this Holy Week. Each day of Holy Week, leading to the Resurrection, presents us with a question which only you, and you alone, can answer.

On Holy Monday, we wash the altar of our church with wine and water. After Jesus came to the Holy City on Palm Sunday, he entered the temple courts, and began to drive out the merchants and moneylenders who were selling and trading in this sacred space. “It is written,” he said to them, “‘My house will be a house of prayer’; but you have made it ‘a den of thieves.’” (Luke 19)

Jesus is the author of change. When he enters your life, your sacred space, He drives out everything that does not belong there and cleanses what remains.

What is it that does not belong in your life? This then is the third question on the road to Resurrection. With a question that is equally important, Are you ready for this cleansing?

Tomorrow: Readiness
