“You are neither cold nor hot. I wish you were either one or the other!”
Revelation. 3:15, niv
I love hot, black coffee and usually have a cup beside me as I work at my desk. But I will get so engrossed in what I am doing that time will pass more quickly than I realize. Again and again, while concentrating on my work, I will absent-mindedly pick up the cup of coffee only to find it is lukewarm. I am glad I am working in private, because my instinctive reaction is to immediately spit the coffee back into the cup!
What an eternal shame it would be if my life caused the Lord to react in the same disgusted way! Yet indifference to Christ was, and still is, disgusting to the Lord! It is incomprehensible to glimpse the glory of Jesus—
The Lord of glory . . .
The Rose of Sharon . . .
The bright Morning Star . . .
and simply shrug! That’s disgusting!
What will you do, instead, to live a life that delights Him?
