This is the only place the word “lukewarm” is used in all of scripture.
Lukewarm means useless.
God is saying I’d rather you be cool, refreshing, calm and encouraging.
God says we need both hot and cold – both are useful. Where are we in our usefulness for God?
Do we come to church to have an encounter with God?
Most people come to sing about Him or hear a sermon about Him.
We’ve got to be connected to the power – Jesus. We need the living water. We need to tap back into the power of God because this world needs us. There is also the responsibility and consequences of coming to Jesus.
Jesus says to take up your cross – this was a death sentence. The very first thing about salvation is you have to die you’ve got to change your focus.
We are saved by grace, not by works. After salvation, it’s all about works.
