You're hot, cold or warm? Gospel messages of God's Word
You're hot, cold or warm? You are yes or no? Hands-on You can do good You can make a difference in someone's life
So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I will vomit you out of my mouth. - Revelation 3:16
The word is hard, but necessary. Many people live just to warm a pew and talk Glory to God, but work in the work of the Lord is good. Nothing.
14 What doth it profit, my brethren, if someone says he has faith but has no deeds? Can faith save him? 15 If a brother or sister be naked, and destitute of daily food. 16 And one of you says to them: Go in peace, aquentai fartai you and you, and not give them the things needed for the body, what doth it profit? 17 Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead in itself. 18 But someone will say, Thou hast faith, and I have works: shew me thy faith without thy works, and I will show thee my faith by my works. 19 You believe that God is one? Thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble. 20 But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead? James 2:14-20
We all want to see a better world. A land of justice, happy, peaceful and filled with the love of God which is what we can truly change people's lives, cities, countries and the world. So we must stand up and put ourselves in the service of the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ.
We can all contribute to the work of the Lord. Our God has given us different gifts. At the bottom of our hearts, each one of us know very well what is the area in which the Lord has enabled us over. Even the person who finds some kind of difficulty and can not clearly define what the type of work for which the Lord has intended, just that the son or daughter of God will make available, to pray and ask for illumination the Holy Spirit of God, the Trinity, of course, there will be an extraordinary way of enabling that person.
In the end, the important thing is to be a vessel of honor to serve the Lord. We have also our capabilities and our limitations. Some are huge trucks, other trucks, other estate and other handcart. No matter what our condition. The important thing is that we do with sincerity and joy in our work the Lord's work. Our God looks at the quality of our work and not quantity, because, in the Lord Jesus returns He will judge each one according to the condition and the talents we have received of the Father So if we are weak we are strong or if it does not has the least importance because, in the end, the Lord Jesus will be all in all.
This business of leaving for tomorrow what should be done today is inda story of who did not understand the dimension of the presence of the Lord Jesus Christ in his life. Who is delaying work on the work of the Lord does not choose a good path for the Spirit of God has warned us about it:
17 To him therefore that knoweth to do good and not do it, sins. - James 4:17
27 Do not withhold good from those to whom the right, in your being able to do so. - Proverbs 3:27
We must never forget the great and wonderful teachings that our Lord Jesus Christ left us: 8 I say to you that everyone who confesses me before men, the Son of man also confess before the angels of God; 9 but he who denies me before men shall be denied before the angels of God.
No matter what our condition. It's like they say those old sayings:
Nobody is so wise that can not learn, nor so small that it can teach.
Nobody is so rich that he can not earn more, nor so poor that they have nothing to give.
No one is so perfect that it does not need God, or so flawed that it can not rely on the mercy and His forgiveness.
And finally, let's open our hearts and our minds to understand that this Word of God is willing to teach us:
Is, however, your speech: Yes, yes, no, no, because what is there, is of evil.
Clearer than that impossible!
Amen and Thank God
