I don’t know what your idea of a beautiful Palm Sunday worship service is like, but here’s a twist for you. How would you feel if during all the festivities, Jesus showed up and wrecked the place and then started lashing the leaders with a home made whip. Meet Rowdy Jesus!
That’s exactly what happened twice in the Gospels when Jesus decided to get rowdy in the temple in defense of wrong worship practices in His father’s house. (John 2:13-17, Matthew 21:12-14)
THIS SUNDAY, we’ll unpack these often misunderstood moment in this life of… ROWDY JESUS
Here’s Some Highlights:
1. Rowdy Spiritual Passion Is A Gift From God. Its Not About Anger, But Energy, Action, And Change!
2. When I Come To Worship, Jesus Wants Me To Decide Whether I Am Here For My Business Or God’s Business.
3. I Should Get Rowdy Too When I Need To Break Free From My Normal Way Of Doing Things To Take A Stand In The Name Of My God!
Jesus takes worship and prayer seriously and has no room for playing games and making deals in His Father’s house! It’s time to get serious…and clean house.
