How Do You Know If You’ve Become Lukewarm

Revelation Series
Jesus says, lukewarmness when it comes to spirituality makes me sick to my stomach. The church in Laodicea had become lukewarm and thus distasteful. The believers didn't take a stand for anything; indifference had led to idleness. By neglecting to do anything for Christ, the church had become hardened and self-satisfied, and it was destroying itself.
How do you know if you’re lukewarm? If you can look at your heart and commitment and say you used to have a more passionate love for God than you do right now.  You’ve COOLED.  That’s the definition of being what lukewarm is, a definition.
Maybe you have COMPROMISED. To become like the world around you will cause you to cool off. You become a room temperature Christian. That means that whatever climate you find yourself in, whether it’s at the office, out playing golf, you just take on the temperature of everything and everyone that’s around you. You are a thermometer instead of being a thermostat that regulates the temperature.
Maybe you just DON’T CARE.  Spiritual apathy has crept into your life. Your cup that started hot has cooled.  Often the question I have is, “How do I stay on fire?  How do I keep the spiritual temperature up in my life?”  Tomorrow we will look at three strategies on how to stay on fire for God.
