I believe we all know what it means to play safe. And most of us have found ourselves playing safe in one occasion or the other.
Playing safe in the sense that, we don’t want to choose sides and we are trying to be a little bit of both sides, or we don’t want to make a decision because we are scared of hurting someone in the process.
Been there done that, infact alot of times.
But today I’m talking about how we as believers and followers of Christ play safe, playing safe in the sense that we are neither cold nor hot.
We claim to be believers, but our actions say otherwise. We boast about Christ and declare him as Lord and savior, but in the real sense we don’t want to quit the bad behaviors and leave behind the things of this Earth.
We are still holding tight to the temporary things of the world. We claim to follow Jesus and believe in him but we don’t want to do the work and deny ourselves to be like him.
We are warned in revelation 3: 16
So, because you are lukewarm—neither hot nor cold—I am about to spit you out of my mouth.
Revelation 3:16 NIV
We will be spit out from Jesus mouth. I don’t know about you, but I don’t want to be spit out by Jesus.
The good news is that there is hope. Jesus is calling us to come to a place of repentance.
He is knocking awaiting for us to open for him, that’s how much he loves us, he wants us to change our ways and accept him and walk in his righteousness.
Because when we do that he will give us the right to sit with him on his throne.
Just as he says
To the one who is victorious, I will give the right to sit with me on my throne, just as I was victorious and sat down with my Father on his throne. Whoever has ears, let them hear what the Spirit says to the churches.”
Revelation 3:21-22 NIV
We are called not to be like the church of Laodicea.
I created a video about the church of Sardis and how we relate to it as children of God. Please check it out below
