Thought for Today: “The Coming Judgment”
God’s judgment may be the one truth that will awaken the church so it can shake the world.
The church of Laodicea in which Jesus addresses in the book of Revelation may be the closet representation of the modern church.
Jesus said the Laodicean church was neither hot nor cold; instead, they were lukewarm, because they falsely believed they had everything they needed. But Jesus quickly quashed this sort of thinking.
In Revelation 3:17 Jesus said, “You say, ‘I am rich, have become wealthy, and have need of nothing’–and do not know that you are wretched, miserable, poor, blind, and naked.”
Using strong visual language Jesus goes on to say that if they didn’t get their act together, if they didn’t repent, if they continued to stay lukewarm being no good to God or the community, He was going to vomit them out of His mouth (Revelation 3:16).
This is not a pretty sight, so let’s get our act together and stop the compromise so that we will hear “Well done, good and faithful servant; you have been faithful over a few things, I will make you ruler over many things. Enter into the joy of your lord.” (Matthew 25:23) Rather than, “I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!” (Matthew 7:23), and then being spewed out of God’s mouth.
