Wednesday In The Word: Food for Thought

Just a simple statement today: Lukewarm people tend to choose what is popular over what is right when are in conflict.



They desire to fit in both at church and outside the church; they care more about what people think of their actions (like church attendance and giving) than what God thinks of their hearts and lives.

"Woe to you when all men speak well of you, for that is how their fathers treated the false prophets." Luke 6:26

"I know your deeds; you have a reputation of being alive, but you are dead." Rev 3:1

"Everything they do is done for men to see: They make their phylacteries wide and the tassels on their garments long; they love the place of honor at banquets and the most important seats in the synagogues; they love to be greeted in the marketplaces and to have all men call them "Rabbi". Matthew 23:5-7

  5. Your post brought to mind Galatians 1:10....Obviously, I’m not trying to win the approval of people, but of God. If pleasing people were my goal, I would not be Christ’s servant.

  7. Yes and Amen! I just taught a lesson yesterday on persecution, including the passage, "all who will live a godly life in Christ Jesus will suffer persecution."

    With all my heart, I want to love Him the way He deserves to be loved. That love is not, nor will it ever be, a tepid one.
