- Romans 12:1 says our bodies are the temple of the Holy Spirit. With that in mind, what truths can be applied to our own lives from John 2:13-25?
- The people Jesus drives out of the temple were in the house of God, but for selfish reasons. What are your reasons or motivations for coming to the house of God on Sunday mornings?
