According to my earnest expectation and my hope, that in nothing I shall be ashamed, but that with all boldness, as always, so now also Christ shall be magnified in my body, whether it be by life, or by death. Philippians 1:20
May God help us today in the midst of our lukewarm apathy toward the things that matter most to Him! If it’s worth anything, it’s worth everything. May God forgive those who will not go the second mile.
Now, in some things moderation is good, like eating, rest, recreation, exercise, and finances. But when it comes to spiritual warfare, moderation is a sin. When it comes to believing the Bible, moderation is a sin. When it comes to loving the Lord, moderation is a sin!
Suppose a wife asked her husband, “Honey, do you love me?” And he replied, “Well, moderately.” She’d fix his wagon, don’t you think? God finds lukewarmness disgusting. In your love for Him, He would rather you be cold than lukewarm (see Revelation 3:15-16).
Friend, if the world considers you a “moderate” when it comes to your Christianity, you are riding the fence of lukewarmness.
