15 “I know all the things you do, that you are neither hot nor cold. I wish that you were one or the other! 16 But since you are like lukewarm water, neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of my mouth!
Ya’ll. I have no excuse for not posting yesterday. I noticed a difference in my day. I didn’t feel as full. I didn’t fill up my bucket with Jesus. I think Jesus gives us moments like these to get us back on track. Lets start by reading this couple verses today.
This message is written to the Church in Laodicea. Good luck pronouncing that. Anyways, in Revelation Jesus is writing to different churches and informing them of the good and bad they have done. I think this is God being like, “You think I didn’t see this? You thought I wouldn’t notice this? I did.”
God created everything. People. The earth. The animals. You name it. In the letter to Laodicea it seems as if the people are living in a grey area. They are neither on fire for Jesus nor totally against him. Lukewarm is what He calls it. When you have lukewarm water, soda, milk, etc. It tastes pretty disgusting.
Jesus doesn’t call us into a lukewarm faith. He wants a faith of fire and passion. Jesus had this passion. A passion for you and me. He loved us and made sacrifices throughout His life, eventually leading to His death. Lets start to live a life where we do things that will make God smile. Live with passion!
Are you hot/cold/lukewarm in your faith right now?
How can you step into being hot in your faith?
Dear Lord, thank you for calling us into something great. Thank you for loving us right where we are at, but loving us too much to keep us there. Amen.
Have a great day!
