He sounded pretty disgusted with this church – saying he would ‘spit’ them out of his mouth.

Lukewarm is not a good place to be. Jesus came to earth to save us and transform us into beacons of light in a lost and broken world.
‘Okay’ is not what we are called to be. The Holy Spirit wants to set a fire burning within us as we seek to know and love our Abba Father. As we learn to love and care for each other in Christ’s name.
Is there a fire burning in our hearts? A fire that burns hot? A fire that keeps us passionate about following Jesus on this journey towards the truth?
Turn up the heat, dear Father!
