What is a lukewarm Christian?

SOMEONE WHO BELIEVES IN GOD, BUT LIVES AS IF HE DOESN’T EXIST.

To the angel of the church in Laodicea write: These are the words of the
Amen, the faithful and true witness, the ruler of God’s creation.  I know
your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot. I wish you were either one or
the other! So, because you are lukewarm-neither hot nor cold-I am about to spit you out
of my mouth. Rev. 3:14-16

You say, ‘I am rich; I have acquired wealth and do not need a thing.’ But
you do not realize that you are wretched, pitiful, poor, blind and naked.
Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens
the door, I will come in and eat with him, and he with me. Rev 3:17, 20

WHEN YOU KNOW HIM…. YOU WILL:

Crave acceptance from Him!
Share him whenever and wherever possible!
Long to be with him eternally in heaven.
This world is not your home!
Give radically, generously, fanatically!
Seek God… faithfully!
Grieve over sinfulness
Different, set apart!
