Are You a Lukewarm Person?

June 23rd, 2012 Posted in sermons

Have you ever eaten something that turned your stomach?

This is exactly how Jesus feels about lukewarm people.

Jesus uses this phrase in Revelation  3 when He says to the church of Laodicea, “I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot. I could wish you were cold or hot.” So then, because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will vomit you out of My mouth” (Revelation 3:15).

Some churches make the Lord weep; others make Him angry. The Laodicean Church made him sick.

For Us Today

Keep in mind that these words are for believers today. So the question is, are you spiritually hot, cold, or lukewarm?

Don’t answer that too quickly, because the lukewarm person is often the last to know.

Why is lukewarmness such an issue? G. Campbell Morgan wrote “There is more hope for the man outside the church in all his coldness than for the man within the church who is near enough its warmth to appreciate it and far enough from its burning heat to be useless to God and man. There is a greater chance for the nonbeliever who has NOT heard the gospel than the man who has become an evangelized nonbeliever.”

This Weekend at Harvest

Let’s make sure that we are not lukewarm spiritually.

Join me this Sunday at Harvest Riverside and Orange County for my final message on the seven churches of Revelation: “Jesus’ Message for Last-Days Believers, Part 2.”

    Oh Pastor Greg! What a glorious day it was today! We went to Harvest Riverside for the 11:30am service and your message, the Lord’s message, was directly for me. Although we missed your physical presence today, God worked His “magic” through you via telecast. Greg, my little sister, who has been walking through “the fire” almost ALL of her life and whom I pray for daily came to Christ today! It was so heart-warming. :) Thank you for being such a diligent Pastor and listening and obeying our Father in Heaven. Through you, His message is well heard.
    And btw, your sense of humor is definitely what also keeps me coming back to hear more. You were too funny today…the sharing of food from your plate…lol! My husband got a real kick out of that one.:)

    Loving you always Pastor Greg,
    Tisha-Monique
