Neither hot or cold.
Not sold out.
Even less passion.
God tells the church in Laodicea that, because they are lukewarm, he is going to spit them out of his mouth. He tells them they are wretched, pitiful, poor, blind and naked.
Wow! Lukewarm is not where I want to be. God’s says that he would rather we be cold than lukewarm.
He is waiting.
He is standing at the door and knocking. If we hear his voice and open the door, he will come in and give us a passion for him.
He will help us become sold out about our relationship with him.
He will help us commit to a life-long journey of faith and he will give us the energy we need to put our faith into action.
A passionate journey of faith is often uncomfortable as well as inconvenient.
But there’s nothing lukewarm about it!
Thank you, dear Father!
