Lukewarm

cb devo jul24“So, because you are lukewarm—neither hot nor cold—I am about to spit you out of my mouth.” Revelation 3:16 (NIV)

If I’m drinking water it has to be ice cold. I cannot stand lukewarm water, and if I drink it my stomach will complain. Likewise, God doesn’t want us to be lukewarm Christians. Settling into a comfortable spiritual life, we can find ourselves losing the love and joy of our salvation. It’s very easy to settle into one set routine for our quite time or get settled into one type of Bible study. When we do this, we are in danger of getting bored and not wanting to do anything at all. The other danger is we are missing out on how God wants to grow our spiritual life and how He wants to use us. Rather than be satisfied with the same old same old, we need to seek new excitement each day in our walk with God. The change God has made in our lives was life changing, but it wasn’t just a one time event. It’s a new lifestyle that will constantly change and get even better. We just have to be willing to up our spiritual temperature from lukewarm to hot.
“Dear God, Show us how to increase the temperature of our walk with You. Give us a new desire each day to know You more in a different way.”

For His Glory

  1. Pray as David did in the fifty first Psalms, because he knows our weaknesses and struggles and what we need most

  2. Lord, help me not to settle but to strive to be my best! Amen!
