I know all the things you do, that you are neither hot nor cold. I wish that you were one or the other! (Revelation 3:15).

The church in Laodicea was known as the lukewarm church, they were neither on fire for the things of God not completely cold toward Him. They were just hanging out, going throughout the motions, and trusting in their wealth and riches, their earthly possessions. Because they had money, they thought they had it all. But it literally made Jesus sick. He doesn’t like the taste of mediocrity with one foot in the church and one foot in the world.

“Behold I, stand at the door and knock,” He said. Because He loved them, He offered them hope in repentance. He wanted to ignite them with the fire of His Spirit once again. He wanted them to serve Him with their whole hearts and”buy” from Him true, spiritual riches that will never fade away.

Ask the Holy Spirit to search your own heart and mind Are you a halfway follower, or do you seek Him with your whole heart? Make the decision to passionately pursue Him. Decide to reject mediocrity and let the fire of the Holy Spirit ignite your heart. Remember, He rewards the people who diligently seek after Him! Amen!
