Tasty Christians (A Little Sample Platter)

I apologize that tonights TND is not finished. We have had a lot of sickness in the Lewis household lately, and I had to bring Renee home from work today. However, I did want to share a little taste (pun intended) of what I am working on. Hopefully, what you see tonight will make you want to come back next week for the finished product.

Revelations 3:15-16

15 I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot.

16 So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.

In Revalations 3:15-16, we have Jesus saying unto the church of Leodecia that they were lukewarm and that he found them so distasteful that he would literily vomit them out of his mouth. Throughout my life and yours, we have heard that Christ wants us to be one of two things. We should be either hot and on fire for God, or a cold sinner who could at least be changed. However, to be a lukewarm apathetic Christians was not something God would not allow. We have heard this message most of life and even Sister Deb spoke on this same topic expertly a few months ago.

I will not elaborate any more on this because we all know this interpretation of the scripture. However, this interpretation has always been a stumbling block for me, because it did not make logical sense. Why God would rather have us be a complete sinner? Would it not be better to be a Christian who was at least doing something things right, than a sinner who was doing nothing? Why would Christ make an allusion to putting us in his mouth in the first place? I always kept these thoughts and questions to myself, for I feared that I might upset the teacher or the preacher giving the message. Nevertheless, this questions never went away until the day I had a very "unique" dinner my wife made.

Good Lord willing I will have the full "meal" next week. I just ask that you pray for Renee so that this sickness will pass quick.
