Always on or barely burning?

Is your faith in Jesus on 24/7 or is it an occasional faith that only manifests itself when you need Him? Are you like the church that Jesus said was lukewarm at Laodicea and because it was lukewarm He would vomit it out of His mouth? The faith that is being shown by the churches in our time is fickle. Many of them want to hear things which make them feel good about themselves instead of the truth.

We are living in the age of the Laodicean church. Believing that we have everything that we need and yet we are poor, blind, and naked in relation to our faith in Jesus. New age, social norms, humanist views all point people in the wrong direction. It doesn’t matter what you call it, if it is not from Christ it is wrong! Your eternal future depends on your belief in Him, nothing more! Any rewards you may receive in Heaven are based on your service to Him and for Him. If you did nothing, you get nothing except life everlasting with Him which will be a reward itself!

Our culture today, especially in the last twenty years, has been exposed to great advances in communication technology. We can communicate with anyone, anywhere and at any time in a matter of seconds through the Internet or over cell phones. This has also caused many to question our belief in God or lack of it. If you have an always-on connection to the Internet you are never out of reach. If, like some people, you are still using dial-up you are only on-line occasionally.

Like someone who only goes to church on Sunday morning or when there is a crisis that they need God’s help with. You “dial God up” and ask or plead for His help, then when He answers your prayer you hang up and don’t come back until He is needed again. This is not how our life with Him is supposed to be! God loves us all and He never hangs up or gives up on any of us, so why do we?
