Devotions written by Mikel Porter

Monday
Mark 11:12-25

Jesus’ final week began with chaos and upheaval in the Temple. The Temple was the largest, most important building in Jewish life. It was historic and the center of society. Notice the Temple visit is sandwiched between the cursing and the withering of a fig tree.

Jesus prophesied through the story of the fig tree and through his actions in the Temple. The building that had been used to portray favoritism and exclude others would be torn down. Jesus’ death and resurrection would pave the way for all to be invited into the family of God. The center of sacrifice and worship would no longer be a building but would be the very person of Jesus.
