Ezekiel 3:10; Colossians 1:15-20, 28-29; 2:3, 6-7; 3:1-4; Revelation 3:14-22; Jeremiah 29:13

Ezekiel 3:10 – we need to take God’s word to our own hearts and hear His words with our own ears. There is a danger if us thinking we know things, but we need to actually listen to what God says.

Colossians 1:15-20, 28-29; 2:3, 6-7; 3:1-4 – This is the truth about who Jesus is. Paul wanted this letter read to the church at Laodicea. He wanted them to grow and develop in their relationship with Jesus Christ.

Revelation 3:14-22 – Thirty years later the church at Laodicea thought they knew Jesus and they thought that they were doing OK. The emphasis was in what they had achieved themselves. There was something seriously wrong and they didn’t realise it. Their passion for and love of Jesus had grown lukewarm. They were neither hot nor cold! They were not giving Jesus the pre-eminence.

God wants to warn us that becoming lukewarm can happen to the best of churches. It needs dealing with before we grow cold. There is so much in the world that can dampen our love and commitment to the Lord. We need a wake up call from God.

Jeremiah 29:13 – we need to seek God with ALL our heart. He needs to be preeminent in our lives.

Jesus has invested so much in us that He doesn’t want us to be lukewarm. Jesus needs to be glorified in order for us to be blessed.
