One more day and a new year begins, 2015, as our focus stays on our eternal destination, as we continue to tell ourselves, we can lukewarmpicno longer afford to “Have a form of godliness, but denying the power” 2 Tim 3:5 (NKJV) Christ will be here soon my friends, as wickedness increase and the love of most draws Cold with no hope of survival.

We as members of the body of Gods Church, God’s chosen vessels, who He has commissioned to finish His mandate ”to the ends of the earth.” we cannot allow our focus going into 2015 to be on materialism, consumerism, and I’ve got to have the latest, simply because it is the latest, instead of on, Jesus Christ and Him Crucified.

God speaks frankly, as he reveals to his church, insights into how this controversy ends. In revelations 3:14-16 (NKJV) He brings his 21st century got to have it now society church to the forefront, as He tells “the angel of the church of  Laodicea’s too write.

“I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot. I could wish you were cold or hot. So then, because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will vomit you out of My mouth!  You say, ‘I am rich. I have everything I want. I don’t need a thing!”

My friends, the purpose of the letter to Laodicea, is so that you and I as part of His church, may overcome, the influences of ourcasualchristian world in the 21st century. But because of His love, grace and mercy, the letter also finished on a triumphant and victorious ending.

“To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and set down with my Father in His throne.” So our prayer today must be that we will not become lukewarm, but we will have a burning passion to carry our cross and become a disciple for Christ.

Paul tells us in Colossians 2:6-8 (NKJV) “As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk ye in him: Rooted and built up in him, and stablished in the faith, as ye have been taught.

…….Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.” My friends, today it must become personal as we tell ourselves “I’d rather have Jesus than silver or gold; I’d rather be His than have riches untold;

Id-Rather-Have-Jesus-430x250I’d rather have Jesus than houses or lands; I’d rather be led by His nail-pierced hand. Or be held in sin’s dread sway; I’d rather have Jesus than anything This world affords today. I’d rather have Jesus than men’s applause; I’d rather be faithful to His dear cause; I’d rather have Jesus than worldwide fame; I’d rather be true to His holy name”

As followers of Christ seeking life eternal, lukewarm, and mediocre cannot be an option about what God’s will is for our lives. There must be a passion that burns within our mind and body as we become witnesses to a world whose spiritual compass points to perdition.

Luke tells us in Luke 24:32 (KJV) When the two disciples of Christ on the road to Emmaus, realizing it was Christ they had spoken too. Said to one another “did not our heart burn within us while He talked with us on the road, and while he opened the scriptures to us?”

That word burn, meaning to be set, or consumed on fire. This is what God wants from each of his Children. If we are consumed kingdomwith a burning passion to have an intimate relationship with God then everyone we talk to, or witness to, will also feel an exhilarating burn within their hearts.

And one day soon as we enter God’s pure and holy kingdom, angels will listen in, as we tell our love one’s who went before us how that consuming fire from God’s spirit burned within and allowed us to make it over.

And as we walk together in heaven on those streets of gold, we are eating from “the tree of life, which grows twelve different kinds of fruits, each tree yielding its fruit every month” with “leaves of the tree for the healing of the nations.” Rev. 22:2 (NKJV)


So my friends today. Stay focused, remain faithful, love one another and endure till the end and never forget to STUDY&PRAY
