Being Lukewarm Is Bad.

Key Verse

“So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I spue thee out of my mouth” (Revelation 3: 16).

Text — Revelation 3: 14-19


The spiritual condition of the Laodicean Church was distasteful to the Lord because they were Lukewarm- neither cold nor hot. So, to be spiritually lukewarm is to be in a state of indifference and casual about spiritual matters. When this happens pride, ignorance, self-sufficiency, and complacency set in. This depicts the spiritual condition of many Christian youth today. God is not happy with Christians who are in the same spiritual state with the Laodicean brethren. The result of spiritual diagnosis performed by the Lord on the lukewarm state of the Laodicean Church showed that they were, “wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked.” It was indeed a dangerous spiritual condition!

However, the loving Shepherd did not shut the door against the Laodicean brethren but called them to repentance and spiritual re-awakening. “As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.” Being lukewarm may indicate that you are too close to the world, or that some things are occupying your heart that chokes your spiritual life. The Lord wants you to repent, and do the first things.


The Lord wants you to repent.


Repent and be zealous.

Prayer for today

Lord, help me to be spiritually awake.
