Testify (2)

I want to share with you the second thing that God used to reveal to me truth about Him......

His word! I went to church and heard sermons preached on how Christians should live and how so many people just "play" church and play games with God and don't even realize it. When I first starting hearing these sermons....and actually seeing the verses in the Bible that are very straight forward on how Christian people should live holy and righteous lives. I would always be thinking of that "one" who needed to hear that. I would actually say to Alan on the way home. "Boy, I'm so glad ____ was there because they really needed to hear that!" Or "I wish _____ could have heard that one!" What a fool I was for thinking that. Those sermons were meant for ME! I'm the one who needed to hear it. You are either for God or against God. You are either hot or cold.In Revelation 3:15 Jesus says " I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot. I wish you were either one or the other! So, because you are lukewarm-neither hot nor cold-I am about to spit you out of my mouth." By examining my life (my personal crock pot) I realized I was set on lukewarm. I was going through life thinking everything was great. I love going to church and being around my church family and I love singing Chris Tomlin loud in my car on the way to and from work and even though I got a warm fuzzy when we would sing the song How Great Thou Art...... I was going to be spit out of God's mouth. I began to feel conviction for just going through the motions of Christianity. ( just having religion)
