We all know to an extent what lukewarm stands for; it’s neither hot nor cold. I have come to realise that most Christians are lukewarm, we specialise so well in the stage of lukewarmness, we want to eat our cake and still have it, we want to be able to serve God and still enjoy our own little pleasures of the world. My dearies, let’s not deceive ourselves, I was once in that stage also, the only thing you do is rob yourself of an amazing relationship with God.
Matt 6:24; No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon. It is clearly stated that we only deceive ourselves when we say…I’m a Christian, and I dig Beyonce/Nicki Minaj/Ariana Grande etc. The lives that we emulate and follow says a lot about our standing in God. God’s word will not change for nobody.
Rev 3:16; So then because thou are lukewarm, and neither cold or hot, I will spur thee out of my mouth. I am a chorister and was once a Sunday school teacher in teens church, I loved the word of God and was so excited in getting more ways to do his will in church, but I also looooveeedd demi lovato and I had most of her songs, without me giving it a thought, I was being influenced by what she did, I also loved Kim kardashian, and if possible, I would watch all kuwtk episodes, but little did I know that, I was being influenced by the people I admired from afar, who didn’t even know I exist. That’s how bad I was influenced. To the world, I was living for God and I was acknowledged for it, but to my Creator, I was so far away from him, as much as God loves us, he can’t behold
iniquity, if he could leave Jesus Christ on the cross (his only begotten son), then we are no exception. The truth that people get twisted nowadays is that we are saved by grace.
Grace is not a license to sin (don’t get it twisted), it’s either you are for God or not, I learnt later in life that I was as sinful as a person who was also not called a Christian, it’s not the word (Christian) that makes you saved,
Matt 7:21; Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.
It is you keeping the way and will of your Father. God is not a fool, and neither is he ignorant of what we do. Our dressing, attitude, utterance, music we listen to; movies and videos we watch should depict that God lives in us. It’s a whole different ball game entirely… It’s either you are fully for God or not. Serving God is not a
part-time job, its FULL-TIME! ! !.
