15 I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot.
16 So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.
Revelation 3:15-16 KJV
If you’re to be a Christian, do your best!
Don’t claim to follow Christ but wander ’round.
Your Bible gathers dust while you attest
To study scriptures daily so profound.
You wear a sliver cross around your neck,
But gossip, cuss and lie for all to see.
You smile at church and tithe with some bad check;
You blew it all on Friday’s gambling spree.
It would be better were you ignorant;
At least a heathen knows just where he stands.
If you’re to be a Christian let’s be blunt:
You’d better ask for help; your time’s at hand.
It’s never good to be a lukewarm saint;
He’ll spew you from His mouth without constraint.

We serve an all the way GOD. HE SAID to give HIM our whole heart, spirit, body and soul.
Matthew 22:37 (MSG) Jesus said, “‘Love the Lord your God with all your passion and prayer and intelligence.’ This is the most important, the first on any list. But there is a second to set alongside it: ‘Love others as well as you love yourself.’ These two commands are pegs; everything in God’s Law and the Prophets hangs from them.”
Mark 12:29 (MSG) Jesus said, “The first in importance is, ‘Listen, Israel: The Lord your God is one; so love the Lord God with all your passion and prayer and intelligence and energy.’ And here is the second: ‘Love others as well as you love yourself.’ There is no other commandment that ranks with these.”
