Revelation 3:15-16 (KJV)
I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot.
So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.
Chinenye’s biggest challenge that made her leave that liberal church in the city was that she had become lukewarm and spiritually weak as a result.
In trying to get back on fire for Jesus again, Chinenye observed that certain things responsible for her becoming lukewarm had to be dealt with. The first was that she was attending a church full of lukewarm and cold believers. She realized that one of the ways hot water becomes lukewarm is by continually mixing it with cold or lukewarm water.
Her biggest challenge now was that her fiance was also lukewarm. He, like her, used to be on fire for Jesus when he was on campus, but he wasn’t very sound in doctrine and was now lukewarm too because of his environment.
Chinenye realized that in order for her to be restored to her place of spiritual fervor, she couldn’t continue to fellowship with lukewarm and compromising believers. She made this clear to her fiance, and together, they started seeking God again.
There are various reasons why believers who were once hot can become lukewarm. One of such reasons is because of fellowship with unbelievers or compromising (lukewarm) believers. In 1 Corinthians 5:11, we see a warning to us not to so much as break bread with a compromising believer? Why, because God does not want us to become lukewarm like them. Spiritual disease is very contagious.
Go into today remembering that being lukewarm is a dangerous place to remain as a believer(see Today’s text). If there was a time in your life that you were more on fire for Jesus than now, it is indeed a matter of concern. Take out time this week to seek the Lord in prayer and fasting, and ask Him to restore your fervor and show you to plug all areas of leakages.
Prayer: Heavenly Father, please keep me on fire for you all the days of my life, in Jesus name. Amen.
