Am I Lukewarm?
In Revelation chapter 3, Jesus told the church of Laodicea that they made him sick to His stomach because they had become lukewarm. Do you know what it means to be lukewarm? It means you are more excited about other things and other interests than you are about Jesus, the Savior of the world. It means that you are spiritually complacent and apathetic to your desperate, daily need of Christ. Listen, no Christian ever stays the same spiritually. You are either growing in the Lord or backsliding. There is no middle ground. As you honestly assess your life, if you are not growing more and more in love with Jesus, something is wrong. If you have no burden to know Him better and walk more closely with Him, it is time to realize the harsh truth: you have gotten lukewarm and you need to remedy to situation ASAP. Cry out to God and ask Him to change your heart and rekindle your love. He draws near to those who draw near to Him. Now that’s real hope.
