The family that prays together stays together
And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God;
I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot.
So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.
Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked:
I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see.
As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.
Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me. Rev 3:14-20
Looking back we sometimes do not see where we have been.
Like the frog in the pot…
Put the frog in hot water he jumps out.
Put the frog into a pot and slowly heat it up… the frog will not jump out but he will end up cooked.
We become Laodiceans when we fall away from God’s Word. We become lukewarm pew sitters.
Not seeing the joy that we first had when we first came to Christ.
Looking back in the rear view mirror we can see where we have been in Christ and where we are now.
It is time to return back to Jesus, Our First Love.
Revival starts with each of us.
Rev. John Kirst
