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 (NIV)
A morning devotional I have recently begun reading dealt with some verses from Revelation today that come with a dire warning: don’t get “spit out!” It is easy to say that we are Christians and become pious, looking down our noses on the sinful hoards that inhabit our fallen world with disdain. While we are busy looking at others, we fail to see the fallen, broken state of our own lives. Convenient, perhaps, but painful. What will Jesus say about you when you meet face to face?
