Word of the Day.... December 19, 2013....

Are You a Lukewarm Person?
"I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot. I could wish you were cold or hot. So then, because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will vomit you out of My mouth"
Revelation 3:15–16 NKJV

Have you ever eaten something that turned your stomach? This is exactly how Jesus feels about lukewarm people.  Some churches make the Lord weep; others make Him angry. The Laodicean Church made him sick.  They are no longer preaching the Word of God, but tickling the ears of their congregation so that they are comfortable.  Telling them what they want to hear instead of what the Bible says.

What does this mean for us? Keep in mind that these words are for believers today. So the question is, are you spiritually hot, cold, or lukewarm? Don't answer that too quickly, because the lukewarm person is often the last to know. Many of them think that they are just fine the way they are.

Why is being lukewarm such an issue? G. Campbell Morgan wrote "There is more hope for the man outside the church in all his coldness than for the man within the church who is near enough its warmth to appreciate it and far enough from its burning heat to be useless to God and man. There is a greater chance for the nonbeliever who has NOT heard the gospel than the man who has become an evangelized nonbeliever." We are living in the last days and the Lord could call us home at any time… Are you ready?
