ONE GREATER THAN THE TEMPLE IS HERE

Matthew 12:5-6 “Or haven’t you read in the Law that on the Sabbath the priests in the temple desecrate the day and yet are innocent? I tell you that one greater than the temple is here.”
The purpose of the Sabbath is to rest and worship God.
The Pharisees had lost the spirit of the law and demanded that the letter of the law be obeyed. They were so concerned about religious rituals they missed the reason for the temple. To worship the Lord.
The temple back then was to bring people together to worship the Lord and fellowship.
The church is here to bring people together to worship the Lord and fellowship.
Focus on Jesus, worship HIM.
The Lord is greater than the temple and even the church today.
