“Is it not written: ‘My house will be called a house of prayer for all nations’…”

As I get to the middle of Chapter 11 in the Book of Mark Jesus’ statement is remarkable! The Jewish temple was meant to be a place for God’s people to come together, enjoy a meal and fellowship with their Lord, a place of relationship, a place of prayer. The religious rulers had made the temple into an organization, a business, where they controlled the people by their traditions, in contrast to Jesus’ who came to serve and not to be served, Jesus who desired a people who would love Him unconditionally. I believe prayer is more than the little bit of words we say so the Lord will bless our meal, but more of a relationship with Jesus. “Where two or three are gathered together in my name I am in your midst” Jesus said. Can it be that when we have a focus solely on knowing Jesus together with a few other Christians in a home, accepting each other unconditionally, enjoying a meal together, sharing the struggles of life together, depending on Jesus together, life can be radically different? I believe Jesus would say “absolutely!” Can I, we find a few other followers of Jesus who would be like minded to solely focus on Jesus and His purposes? Could our homes be called houses “of prayer for all nations”?
