When we hear about the life and ministry of Jesus, we hear that he healed sick people, spent time with children, and exuded love and mercy toward his disciples. Perhaps that is why the gospel for the third Sunday of Lent is jarring. After all, it shows Jesus denouncing what is unjust and throwing out the money-changers from sacred grounds, the temple. The song asks us what kind of messengers of God’s love we are.
Key Lyrics: Don’t have to wonder your purpose / Or what you’re here for / Reflect his image / And show the world what he cares for
