Lukewarm Leftovers

Revelation 3:14-19:

14 “And to the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write,
‘These things says the Amen, the Faithful and True Witness, the Beginning of the creation of God: 15 “I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot. I could wish you were cold or hot. 16 So then, because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will vomit you out of My mouth. 17 Because you say, ‘I am rich, have become wealthy, and have need of nothing’—and do not know that you are wretched, miserable, poor, blind, and naked— 18 I counsel you to buy from Me gold refined in the fire, that you may be rich; and white garments, that you may be clothed, that the shame of your nakedness may not be revealed; and anoint your eyes with eye salve, that you may see. 19 As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten. Therefore be zealous and repent.

Are we worshiping God by offering our sacrifices of praise  – the first fruits of our time, our energy, our attention, our focus, our passion, our effort, our resources?  Do we approach him with humility and gratitude?

Or do we approach with pride in our position and our achievements?  Are we just serving God our “lukewarm leftovers?”

Worship God in spirit and in truth this Lord’s day – and every day.
