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.
(Revelation 3:15,16 NIV)
We have the truth, fancy buildings, and elaborate worship
services. We have prayer meetings, Bible studies,
and community outreach programs. Yet something is still
missing. In spite of our religious appearance, many of our
churches no longer resemble the church written about in
the book of Acts. Many Christians today are not easily
distinguishable from the world. We may go through the
motions, but our heart isn’t in it. This is what happens
when our “Christianity” is neither hot nor cold, but lukewarm.
How could God’s people get to this point?
This morning and afternoon, Pastor Bill Kasper will examine
the letter to the church of Laodicea, found in the
book of Revelation, to reveal the true source of lukewarm
spirituality as well as how we can overcome this
predicament and have a renewed passion for God.
