I know your works: you are neither cold nor hot. Would that you were either cold or hot! So, because you are lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of my mouth. Revelations 3:15-16.
Ever eat something way to spicy hot that your mouth felt like it was on fire? Or drank something way to cold that you get a brain freeze? We tend to like things to be just the right temperature, so we don’t hurt ourselves or others we’re feeding.
However, in the verse above God doesn’t want us wishy-washy or lukewarm. Jesus wants us on fire for Him. Jesus doesn’t want anyone left out in the cold either. As believers, we are to share the gospel to all people in all places. Not everyone will believe God’s good news of salvation, but that should not deter us from being and doing our best for Jesus.
Jesus will be at the gate of heaven waiting for us. I think I rather go to paradise in heaven where it’s beautiful, than to be where it’s hotter than hell. I pray this devotion helps you to chose this day to be with Jesus.
This week as we start Phase 2, let others take your temperature. You don’t want to be visiting the doctor’s too soon. Take the time to share Jesus & Stay safe!
