What Would Jesus Undo – Part 1
Pastor Louis Johnson, August 5, 2018
Part 1- Indifference
(Revelation 3:15-16) “I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot. I wish you were either one or the other! 16 So, because you are lukewarm—neither hot nor cold—I am about to spit you out of my mouth.”
Two Causes of Spiritual Indifference
(Revelation 3:17 )“You say, ‘I am rich; I have acquired wealth and do not need a thing.’ But you do not realize that you are wretched, pitiful, poor, blind and naked.”
Distractions of this world.
(Mark 4:19) But the worries of this life, the deceitfulness of wealth and the desires for other things come in and choke the word, making it unfruitful.
Living with Lukewarm Indifference
We’re more concerned with impressing people than living for God.
2. We’re obsessed with life on earth rather than eternity.
We rationalize sin and live without truly fearing God.
We believe in Jesus, but we rarely share our faith.
We only turn to God when we need Him.
We’re not much different from the world.
Reigniting the Spiritual Fire
Every day, do something that requires faith.
(Revelation 3:19 NLT) “I correct and discipline everyone I love. So be diligent and turn from your indifference.”
(Revelation 3:17) “You say, ‘I am rich; I have acquired wealth and do not need a thing.’ But you do not realize that you are wretched, pitiful, poor, blind and naked.”
(Revelation 3:20) “Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with that person, and they with me.”
