Good Morning! Today’s devotional meditation is taken from Revelation 3:15-16, which says,
“I know your works: you are neither cloud or hot! (16) So, because you are lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of my mouth.”
There is a real danger of being lukewarm for Christ. It is time to examine our zeal for the Lord. Without Him, we are nothing. He did the greatest thing anyone could have ever done for us, He gave His life for us so that He could satisfy God’s righteous demand for the payment of the sin debt. He suffered the wrath of God the Father for you and I. Therefore, I can see why the Lord is not happy with lukewarmness in the lives of those who say they are His.
Again, it is time to examine our zeal for the Lord. Are we faithful to Him? Do we casually serve Him? Is His Word a priority in our lives? Do we make excuses why we don’t come to worship Him? Is He an afterthought until things get really bad in our lives? Do we seek Him first? We must be honest with ourselves. If our answers to these questions point out that He is not a priority, then we are lukewarm. Notice Jesus’ reaction in verse 16, He said He “will spit us out of His mouth” because we are “neither hot or cold.” It is time to examine ourselves and make a decision.
Get on Fire for Christ.
