This passage discusses the church in Laodicea and its lukewarm stance toward God. The believers didn’t stand for anything as their indifference had led to idleness. You would think that lukewarm would be more acceptable to Him, because it is somewhat close to hot. But, how often do you ask the lady behind the counter for a lukewarm cup of coffee? Never, because it is distasteful and unsatisfying. The lukewarm person is riding the fence, sometimes in and sometimes out, a self-deceiving prophecy with eternal ramifications. Choose hot or cold. What is your spiritual temperature today?
1. What is my spiritual temperature? Have I been guilty of halfhearted commitment?
2. What are some steps I can take to be sure my commitment to God is wholehearted?
Challenge: Resolve to let Christ fire up your faith and get you into the action. Pray for God’s strength as His Spirit works through you!
