It's Cold Outside
Currently it's about 10 degrees in Columbus, and that is COLD!! Later in July or August we will be complaining because the temperature will be near 100 degrees and it will be HOT!! We seem to really like that 75 degree weather, which could be described as lukewarm, and when we are talking about the weather lukewarm is okay. Where are you though on your Spiritual thermometer?
"So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth." Revelation 3:16
As a Christian being lukewarm isn't good. God would rather have you to be hot or cold. Many of us do bounce up and down on the Spiritual thermometer. If there is a revival or some Christian concert that gets us excited we become hot for God and we tell others how good God is! Other times when it seems that nothing exciting is going on we may be on the cold side of the Spiritual thermometer and not really talk about God to anyone. At least this Christian can get excited every now and then.
A lukewarm Christian may go to church, but never really gets excited and never shares the good news of what God has done for them. I picture a person just going through the motions and not really understanding how good God is. Don't be that person!
We need to get hot as Christians and share the good news of Jesus Christ!
