You Make Me Want To Vomit

 

Albert Einstein once said: The world is a dangerous place.  Not because of the people who are evil, but because of the people who don’t do anything about it.   I think he painted a picture of complacency with this statement.   We get satisfied with the way things are & instead of stepping out in courage to make a difference – we excuse our mistakes & refuse to retake the future.

I’ve found that complacency in any form is dangerous; in your marriage & family, in your finances or job, and in the church.

In the book of Revelation – God directed John to write letters to various churches help them realize their true condition & to the Church in Laodicea he wrote   “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.”  Rev. 3:15 Msg

To this Church God basically said – you’re lukewarm (complacent) … & that makes me sick.  I wonder if God feels the same way when those of who claim to be Christ followers treat our marriage, family or work in similar fashion?
