Revelation 3:16—The Message—“I know you inside and out, and find little to my liking. You’re not cold, you’re not hot—far better to be either cold or hot! You’re stale. You’re stagnant. You make me want to vomit.”

Is this what God is saying?

Is God thinking this about us?

I fear that churches today has become mediocre.  And we are mediocre in our response to church.  When was the last time we screamed for joy, at the top of our lungs at the amazing glory and majesty of God?  When was the last time we stopped in awe?  Is religion the spark of our lives?

Just think:  if we are mediocre Christians and we respond to our religion in mediocre ways, what is that saying about our God?  Are we portraying our God in a bad way through our mediocre responses?  Have we taken away the awe of God?  I fear that we have made God’s majesty mediocre.  If visitors see mediocre Christians, then what is the draw?  I want us to be passionate and to share that passion with others so much so that it is contagious and the only thing that passion can do is spread.

How do we respond to our God?  Do we respond to God alone, giving Him praise no matter who is around or is our response restrained for fear of looking like a passionate Christian?
