How Do I Tell If I Am Lukewarm? // Ask Pastor John

A video published by Desiring God on September 16th, 2020

How can we tell if we are spiritually lukewarm, like the Christians in Laodicea? We can look at our private prayer life. What is lukewarmness? And what barometer would we use to gauge whether or not we are lukewarm? Pastor John offered a clear definition (and a gauge for us to use) in his sermon on Revelation 3:14 14 And to the angel of the church in Laodicea write: These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God: –22, a text that includes Jesus’s words to the church in Laodicea, where he says they are “lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold,” and then threatens to therefore spit them from his mouth ( Revelation 3:16 16 So because thou art lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I will spew thee out of my mouth. ). It’s a haunting text. So, what is lukewarmness? Here’s Pastor John to explain in a sermon preached back in 1983.
