I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot. I wish you were either one or the other! So, because you are lukewarm – neither hot nor cold – I am about to spit you out of my mouth (Rev 3:15-16).
Lukewarm – neither cold nor hot. Clearly not acceptable to the Lord. It actually leaves a bad taste in His mouth – to such an extent that he wants to spit those who are lukewarm out of his mouth.
Lukewarm – neither cold nor hot. Lukewarm can be very detrimental… So “in between.” Nice and cosy. Perhaps in the physical, but dangerous in the spiritual – a danger that could have extreme implications.
How is it with you and me? Are we lukewarm in our spiritual life? Let us examine ourselves as a matter of urgency and make things right with the Lord if we’ve backslidden into a comfort zone of a lukewarm spiritual life.
Prayer: Dear Lord Jesus… I don’t want to be lukewarm… I don’t want to be spit out of Your mouth. I want to be spiritually hot Lord! Please let the fire of your Holy Spirit quicken me so that I will be hot for You.
