Revelation 1-3 – Day 26

Revelation 3:14-16

To the angel of the church in Laodicea write: These are the words of the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the ruler of God’s creation. I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot. I wish you were either one or the other! So, because you are lukewarm — neither hot nor cold — I am about to spit you out of my mouth.

The Thought

The last of the seven churches is far from perfect in God’s eyes. That is a sad reflection on today’s church. Many see these letters as being each one to a different time period in church history, starting with the early church and finishing in Laodicea with our modern day churches. If we think in that way, we must remember that these letters are not to denominations, but to the people God sees as His church on the earth. Which branch of the church we are a part of is not important. It is the way we live in our everyday lives that will affect our place in Heaven.


Ask yourself today if you think of yourself as a catholic, protestant, baptist, pentecostal, charismatic, or any other of the labels we humans have put on those who attend a church regularly. Or would you just call yourself a Christian? Do you consider yourself cold, hot, or lukewarm?

Jesus also describes Himself in these verses as the ruler of God’s creation a fact which is confirmed all the way through The Bible. Proverbs has a whole chapter dedicated to The call of Wisdom. There, we read The Lord brought Me forth as the first of His works, before His deeds of old. I was appointed from eternity, from the beginning, before the world began (Proverbs 8:22-23).

Read that chapter today and make a decision to ask Him for more of His wisdom in every situation.
