THANKFUL THURSDAY...what's your temperature?

Revelation 3:16 "So, because you are lukewarm, neither hot nor cold - I am about to spit you out of My mouth."

God said that He would spit us out of His mouth if we are lukewarm, that is because He doesn’t want any “whisy washy”children. He would rather we are sold out totally for Him or be away from Him with the hopes that we will turn to Him. One that sits on the fence,  who straddles is often difficult to be obedient.

Have you ever known someone who changed their mind with the wind? One day they are one way, then the next day they are something else.

This happens a lot with sports fans. Many sports fans root for the winning team, and when their team goes on a losing streak, they get off their bandwagon real quick and switch teams. They are what I call “wish washy fans”. Jesus Christ has some “wishy washy” fans too. They call themselves Christians as long as everything is going good, but the minute trouble brews, they jump off the bandwagon and remove themselves from God and all that He stands for.

Today is THANKFUL THURSDAY and I am grateful for all the strong men and women who have led the way by example of how they live their lives. Lives that don't straddle the fence, but lives that walk the walk not just talk the talk.

May we all find ourselves today with the right temperature in our spiritual walk with God. May He find us HOT and boiling over as we grow in Him.

Its been a pleasure to be your hostess this month for TT. Please join us over at GRACE ALONE for August where Iris will be hosting on Thursdays.
