“To the angel of the church in Laodicea write: These are the words of the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the ruler of God’s creation. 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 3:14-16 (NIV)

Today’s commentary
by Dave Whitehead, Senior Pastor, GraceNYC.org, Author of Making Sense of the Bible

What does it mean to be lukewarm? We are neither hot with a passion for Christ nor cold with antagonism against God’s commands. Instead we have enough passion and antagonism mixed together to create apathy. We were created to live with conviction, no matter what that conviction is, and God considers anything less as a serious insult to the way that he made us.
