Be Still . . .
Devotionals for Daily Living
I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot. I wish you were either one or the other!
(Revelation 3:15 (NIV))
Are you still sitting on the fence?
Are you thinking of following Jesus but still enticed by the world?
Does your attitude change based on whomever you are with?
Do you go from one extreme to the next in your thoughts and actions?
Jesus referred to people like this as being lukewarm. They can’t make a commitment to stand firm. They do one thing that is right in the eyes of God and the very next thing that they do is a major sin. Perhaps you simply walk a path that is neither an attempt to follow Jesus, nor is it a rejection of the world. Unfortunately, there are consequences for this type of behavior.
So, because you are lukewarm—neither hot nor cold—I am about to spit you out of my mouth.
(Revelation 3:16 (NIV))
You may ask, “What about grace?”
If you call upon Jesus as your personal Lord and Savior, and then deny Him, have you truly accepted God’s gift of grace? Have you decided in your mind that you are a sinner in need of a Savior?
It is time to make up your mind!
