14 ”To the an=
gel of the church in Laodicea write:

These are the words=
of the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the ruler of God’s creati=
on. 
15 I know your deeds, that=
you are neither cold nor hot. I wish you were either one or the other=
!
 16 So, because you are lukewarm-n=
either hot nor cold-I am about to spit you out of my mouth.
 17 You say, ‘I am rich; I have acquired wealth and=
do not need a thing.’ But you do not realize that you are wretched, p=
itiful, poor, blind and naked. 18 I=
counsel you to buy from me gold refined in the fire, so you can becom=
e rich; and white clothes to wear, so you can cover your shameful nake=
dness; and salve to put on your eyes, so you can see.

Fearlessly Lukewarm
 
Laodicean Christians are fearful and r=
espectful enough of God’s power to acknowledge and worship The Lord, but th=
ey are self-sufficient enough to live their lives independent from God.&nbs=
p; It is the arrogance of that thinking that makes them lukewarm (v.17a).&n=
bsp; Jesus said “you cannot serve two masters” (Mt. 6:24).  Remember t=
hat God is not looking for a building full of good, law-abiding hard-workin=
g church folk.  Deeds alone won’t cut it (v. 15).  The Lord seeks=
committed followers who see a relationship with Jesus as the source of all=
things in their lives.  

Lord, we seek to place our lives in Your refiner’s fire.  Cover =
our nakedness, heal our blindness, and remove the poverty of our faith.&nbs=
p; Help us to know the power and strength behind being Your witness in all =
things, in Jesus name … AMEN.

God bless,
