The Disease of Lukewarmness

The Disease of Lukewarmness
I was shifted again on Sunday morning to share a word from Revelation 3 which contains a loving rebuke of the Laodicean lukewarm church. 

Lukewarm means: "moderately warm or tepid. To be indifferent, halfhearted, apathetic, or unenthused". 

Jesus loves these saints so much that he disciplines them with a rebuke and invites them to "zealously repent". The consequence of not doing this will be the Lord spitting them out of his mouth(or fellowship). 

The word to them, and to us New Life, is to overcome lukewarmness!! This is ours to do not his. He has provided everything to do it if we will agree. If we will not, there will be a more deadly consequence to us than the worst diseases on planet earth. 

Lastly, I am never shocked by lukewarmness coming into a believers life, or the life of a body of believers. It is as contagious as the flu. What is shocking is our lack of effort to get the disease off of us, and each other, before it erodes our life here and in the future kingdom. 

Pray for a radical hate of and freedom from lukewarmness.

Sam
