Dead, Faithful or Lukewarm

Dead, Faithful or Lukewarm

Are you on fire for Jesus? Are you sitting, at church, in the seat on Sunday morning waiting for the service to be over so you can watch the game, go to your favorite restaurant or other activity? Do you occasionally pray and sometimes discuss Scripture or another aspect of Christianity?

Well, we should heed the warning and listen, then act accordingly. – Revelation 3 (NKJV) He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. 

After a number of years being lukewarm about Jesus the pain was overwhelming, the chains too heavy to carry and the misery of being “puked out” was more than anyone should have to deal with. Throwing my hands above my head and to God with everything my weak soul could muster the changes were almost immediate, the Holy Spirit filled the space, softened my heart and cleared my mind. Since that day it has been a journey to be faithful to our Lord and Master Jesus Christ.

The choice is ours to make – Sardis, the dead church, Philadelphia, the faithful church or Laodicean, the lukewarm church. Dead, alive or “puked out”.

Revelation 3 NKJV

3 Remember therefore how you have received and heard; hold fast and repent. Therefore if you will not watch, I will come upon you as a thief, and you will not know what hour I will come upon you.
4 You have a few names even in Sardis who have not defiled their garments; and they shall walk with Me in white, for they are worthy.
5 He who overcomes shall be clothed in white garments, and I will not blot out his name from the Book of Life; but I will confess his name before My Father and before His angels.
6 “He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.” ’
