On Your Heart Tuesday
What is on my heart today? Lukewarm Christians, what is up with that? When Jesus was walking up that hill, carrying that very heavy cross upon His back, He did not keep changing His mind. He did not say, "Yes, I will gladly die for you, and then, a few minutes later say, "No, I refuse to die for you". He loves us always, beyond measure. But, so many of us, change our minds about Jesus, as often as the seasons change. One month, we are totally on fire, sold out for Jesus. Our mouths are filled with praise for Him continually. We are at church every time the doors are open. We share Him with others, every opportunity we get. We pray without ceasing. Woo Hoo!! Then, the following month, the blazing fire, turns into a tiny spark. We barely speak His name, we stay home, or choose to do other things, instead of going to church. We constantly let opportunities to share Him with others, pass us by. Our prayer life, is non-existent. But, guess what? We wonder, where did Jesus go? My friends, He has not gone anywhere. He does not leave us, we leave Him. It is as if, we put Him in a box, place Him on the shelf, and take Him down occasionally. This is crazy. God does not want us to be lukewarm, He wants us to be one way, or the other. He will spit out the lukewarm. So, please, choose a temperature, and stay that temperature full-time. I choose to be on fire, burning up for Jesus always. Because, I refuse, to burn in hell!!
