#6 Indifference

series: Thawing

title: indifference

teacher: Jacob Bender

date: February 12, 2017

scriptures: Revelation 3:14-20, Ezekiel 16:49, Matthew 25:45-46, Luke 16, Deuteronomy 27:19, Ephesians 6, 1 John 3:18

Jesus says to the church in Laodicea - "would that you be hot or cold... but because you are lukewarm, I will spit you out of my mouth!" -Revelation 3:15-16.

 Most of us growing up being taught: You should be one or the other… and we associate hot or cold as being GOOD or BAD… and the teaching is typically that being lukewarm means you are somewhere in the middle of good and bad... and with THAT framework we hear Jesus saying: you are lukewarm and because of that I will spit you out of my mouth! and That leaves people thinking that Jesus would rather a person flat out deny him… not serve him at all, than to serve him, we could say: “half heartedly” - but what does that even mean?
