Revelation 3:14-22, Neither Hot Nor Cold

Key Verse

I know your works; you are neither cold nor hot. I wish that you were either cold or hot. So, because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I am about to spit you out of my mouth.
— Revelation 3:15-16

RCL Daily Devotion for Monday, September 30, 2019

RCL Daily Devotions written by Daniel D. Maurer from RCL Worship Resources (see more).


My wife will be the first to attest that I am a passionate person. Things get me riled up! Sometimes, it’s inappropriate.

Like most people, it’s easy to lose perspective.

Recently, my mother ended up in the hospital for a suspected heart attack or sepsis. Right now they still aren’t sure. What this time has taught me is that our parents are only with us for so long. One day, they will be gone.

All of the sudden, all of the things that I had been fussing about didn’t matter as much. When I heard the news she was sick, I went to reconsidering the really important things in life:

Relationships, Love of Others, God’s Purpose in the World.

Being hot about things is fine. But just be sure that the things you’re hot about really do make a difference in the long run.

What about you? Hot? Cold? Lukewarm?
