Jesus’ fierce heart — The Masculine Journey

Bible Verse of the Day

13 When it was almost time for the Jewish Passover, Jesus went up to Jerusalem. 14 In the temple courts he found people selling cattle, sheep and doves, and others sitting at tables exchanging money. 15 So he made a whip out of cords, and drove all from the temple courts, both sheep and cattle; he scattered the coins of the money changers and overturned their tables. 16 To those who sold doves he said, “Get these out of here! Stop turning my Father’s house into a market!”

John 2:13-16

Yesterday we began looking at the heart of Jesus and He was full of love and compassion. Today we begin to look more deeply at His fierceness when the situation needed it.

In the above passage I don’t know how much you may have thought about how long it would take to make a whip out of cords and I am sure Jesus was the best whip maker to ever walk this earth (He was the best at everything ), but it would have taken a fair amount of time. In other words, this was an intentional act by Jesus.

Another story His willingness to “fight” when needed was the healing of the man on sabbath. This made the Sadducees and Pharisees infuriated to the point they discussed killing Jesus. As the story goes on the next sabbath approaches and Jesus heals yet another person knowing full well what had taken place and what it would to the religious leaders of the day.

Yet another story of when the woman was about to get stoned by the crowd and Jesus steps in tells them that whoever had not sinned cast the first stone, to which the crowd dissipated.

One final story (and there are many more) Jesus battles the demons called Legion that were tormenting a man and casts them into nearby group of pigs that preceded to run off a cliff to their death.

Oh yes Jesus is the most loving, compassionate person to ever walk this earth, but don’t forget His fierceness to battle injustice, to right wrongs, and to fight for those He loves ( all of us)

Take a moment today to ask the Holy Spirit to remind you of how Jesus has fought for you.

In the Father’s love, Sam
