Revelation 3:19 (KJV) “As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.”


Reflect: We’re called to be on fire for God, to be passionate followers of Christ, and to intentional in how we live for Him. But it’s not always easy. Our faith can be pushed to the background, we can lose our motivation to seek God and we can become weighted down by things we have to face in life.


Seven churches are mentioned at the beginning of Revelation, the seventh being Laodicea. This church thought that they are good in God’s eyes but was told, “I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.” (Revelation 3:15-16).


God doesn’t want us to be lukewarm when it comes to our service and faith. He wants us to be serious and have zeal for Him. Zeal is enthusiasm, dedication or passion for something. In Revelation 3:19 the people were told to be zealous and repent.


And that’s exactly what we need to do too. We need to find our passion for God again. God hates half-hearted service and faith to Him, it is sin (Romans 14:23). He wants our whole heart.


We need to get excited about Him again. God commanded that He should be our top priority (Matthew 22:37), the first thing we think of in the morning and the last thing before we retire at night. He should be the One we are living for. We need to repent of our lukewarm ways.



Prayer: ‘Lord, increase my passion for You. Forgive me for my lukewarm ways. I want to be found earnestly seeking You with a zeal and passion that keeps me close to You.’ In Jesus’ Mighty Name,
