Temperature can be defined as how hot or cold the body is. Lately, my body has gone through some temperature changes, rendering me HOT most of the time. It has it’s pro’s and con’s. I can endure the elements better, but when I am indoors, I feel like I may humanly combust.
The Word of God mentions temperature when referencing our relationship to God.
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
Lukewarm. It seems ideal. A comfortable place. But here, lukewarm makes Our God want to spit us out!!!
When I think about my life in relationship to God, I think of my cold, hard heart towards Him or times when my heart has been on FIRE for Him. But what about the times when my heart is neither? What then? Is it that I’m not concerned about God at all? Is being lukewarm being dishonest before God?
Why is lukewarm something that is not palatable for Our Lord?
May my heart and yours steer clear of lukewarmness. May we be in the will of God and bring His Kingdom come into all areas of our lives and the lives of others. May You give us wisdom as to why lukewarm is so distasteful to You Father. May we seek You with our whole hearts and be filled with Your abundant LIFE! In Jesus’ name.
