Blessings to you from God our Father and Jesus our Savior, Revelation 3. 15-20 15I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot. I wish you were either one or the other! 16So, because you are lukewarm—neither hot nor cold—I am about to spit you out of my mouth. 17You say, ‘I am rich; I have acquired wealth and do not need a thing.’ But you do not realize that you are wretched, pitiful, poor, blind and naked. 18I counsel you to buy from me gold refined in the fire, so you can become rich; and white clothes to wear, so you can cover your shameful nakedness; and salve to put on your eyes, so you can see. 19Those whom I love I rebuke and discipline. So be earnest and repent. 20Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with that person, and they with me.
I said last month that we are all called to imitate Jesus and He showed us what love looks like when He walked this earth. We are to live in love – love demonstrated at Calvary. When John wrote to the 7 churches in Revelation. He told them God’s message for them. They were called to take the words to heart. They were invited to share in God’s provision and love. BUT, as you read above – many chose to wait – to sit on the fence – to waffle. Verse 16 is what God is planning for these people – even today. The last part of the above verse should alert us that The Lord is knocking on our door. He wants to come into our lives even more fully. This is the best thing we could ever do. Just try to envision what our life would be like if we fully trusted and depended upon Jesus? WOW! I truly do not believe words could adequately describe the joy and peace that we would have. Remember that it is available to you – right now – thru Jesus – you Savior. Do it now!

John continued Revelation 3 21To the one who is victorious, I will give the right to sit with me on my throne, just as I was victorious and sat down with my Father on his throne. 22Whoever has ears, let them hear what the Spirit says to the churches.”
We have been warned. We have been offered victory and the right to sit with Jesus and His Father in heaven. What a day that will be.
In Christ’s Love, Pastor Frank
