From the account of the cleansing of the temple recorded in John 2, we learn several lessons:
1. God's worship is to come only from God's plans. 2. God desires worship from a converted heart, not from pretty aesthetics. 3. God sees and knows the difference-what is in a man, his motivations, reasons and reasoning. God HATES hypocrisy. 4. True religion is about the true temple-Jesus.
