And Jesus went into the temple of God, and cast out all them that sold and bought in the temple…And the blind and the lame came to Him in the temple; and He healed them. – Matthew 21:12.14
If Jesus comes into your soul He will come as a Reformer. He will make your heart a temple, and out of it He will drive the buyers and the sellers, and all else that would pollute the soul. With His scourge of small cords He will whip out many a naughty thing from the heart which He makes His temple. Ay, let the thieves go! If your heart has been made a den of thieves by evil desires, should not these be chased out without mercy? So let it be. Welcome, Thou great Refiner! Fain would we lose our dross.
I feel so glad to have to add that when He comes into your heart He will hold a leve (a monarch’s reception). Did I not note it to you when we were reading the fourteenth verse? -“The blind and the lame came to Him in the temple; and He healed them.” Dear heart, if Jesus comes to you, all that is blind and lame about you shall be healed. That was a singular leve, was it not? Many of that select company came on crutches, and some with legs doubled up, or malformed. Blind men were there, with useless eyeballs or empty sockets where eyes should have been. Into this limping, groping circle came the King of glory, and He did not repel them, but He healed them. Admit the Lord into your heart, and the limping of your unbelief will be exchanged for the reapings of faith. Then shall you see those things to which your heart has long been blind. Let Him in! Let Him in! Believe on Him, and trust Him, and so let Him into your heart, and you shall find Him the physician of your soul. ~ C.H. Spurgeon
