Passion For Christ
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
What is the center of your life that gets most your attention? Your passion? Is it a hobby? A pet? A car? A sports team? An activity? Do you get excited about Sunday and look forward to worship? Perhaps you are a good person coasting through life who claims to know Christ but has no interest in spiritual things to get closer to Him.
For a person to truly 'know' and be passionate about Christ first they need a heart transplant of sorts. If you are just ho hum, so so, maybe it is time to ask God to renew your fire and zeal for Him. If you never had it in the first place perhaps now is the time to get it. It is the Holy Spirit that convicts a person of their need for Jesus. The verse I gave today is pretty clear. If you are just living life without God except one hour Sunday that is like lukewarm food. Not very tasty.
What are you going to do about it my friend? Some priorities may need to be changed to fit God into each and every day. Spend time in His word, The Bible, for there you find your tools for getting through the challenges of life.
PRAYER: I ask forgiveness Lord for those days I have let something squeeze you out of my morning. You are more important than checking my Facebook status so I just need discipline to do what is truly important. In Jesus' name. Amen.
