What Are My Options?
And if it seems evil unto you to serve the Lord, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord. Joshua 24:15
Door A or Door B. "I'll take an A Pat". "Give me the leather interior option." "I would like to go by plane instead of on the bus." "Put some sprinkles on top of my ice cream." Life throws many choices and options at us. "To be or not to be, that is the question."
When it comes to knowing and following Christ there is no in between ground. You are either not in or all in. No half way. Even Revelation 3:16 says "So, because you are lukewarm—neither hot nor cold—I am about to spit you out of my mouth." Pretty direct I would say. No one likes any thing lukewarm. Lukewarm showers are horrible. Lukewarm coffee is awful. Also a lukewarm believer has no impact in his or her world and really there is a question about how much they really have a passion for the Lord if they act lukewarm.
Are you just a lukewarm believer or do you 100% serve the Lord with all your being? Maybe saying you are a Christian is like being a member of a club but you aren't active. Why not choose Jesus and live for Him and see how great your life can be.
PRAYER: I choose to not be lukewarm and to not listen to the lies of Satan. I commit to pray for those I know who are leading lukewarm lives. Help me never become judgmental or self righteous. In Jesus' name. Ame.
