Intro: What did the Temple represent to 1st Century Israel?

In His good design, what is God’s primary concern for us?

How is Jesus like both a lamb and a lion?

What is a critical distinction between meekness and weakness?


1. Worship the LORD for His holiness and goodness. Praise Him, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, for how He utterly embodies everything He requires of us and empowers us for faithfulness by His Grace.

2. How have you lived with unaddressed corruption or a superficial pursuit of image? Confess your lack of integrity to Jesus, asking Him to forgive you and heal you so that you would live out His goodness with joy.

3. Give thanks to Jesus for His work to remove the mountain of our sin and corruption and to give us His true goodness. Thank Him for dying to pay for your guilt and being raised to heal you back to His good design.

4. Who do you know that struggles with image over substance? Pray for them, asking the Lord to help them to see the vanity of their current ways, and to repent to trust Jesus for true character and integrity.

5. Ask the Holy Spirit to bear in you His fruit of love and goodness. Pray for His ongoing power to work out of you all the ways that you lack integrity and to build into you true faith and love.
