You are not hot or cold. I wish that you were hot or cold! But you are only warm, not hot, not cold. So I am ready to spit you out of my mouth. Revelation 3:15-16
Jesus doesn’t want passive followers. He wants us to pursue Him, to seek understanding, to pray for more faith, to know and hold fast to what is true and to reject what isn’t, to obey God’s Word, and to persevere through hard things, of which there will be many.
Jesus wants followers who will passionately pursue Him to the ends of the earth. Let’s turn up the temperature.
I charge you in the presence of God and of Christ Jesus, who is to judge the living and the dead, and by His appearing and His kingdom: preach the word; be ready in season and out of season; reprove, rebuke, and exhort, with complete patience and teaching. For the time is coming when people will not endure sound teaching, but having itching ears they will accumulate for themselves teachers to suit their own passions, and will turn away from listening to the truth and wander off into myths. 2 Timothy 4:1-4 ESV
