Lukewarm isn’t good . . .

Half-hearted Christianity is full-scale deception. “Lukewarm” isn’t good. Anything that shuts your heart down toward Jesus is unchristian.

Wholehearted Christians stir things up with their passion for Christ. Many church attendees are easily freaked out by a wholehearted Christian. Sports teams never try to tone down the enthusiasm of their fans–but churches seem to prefer toned down attendees.

When Christians are half-hearted, casual religion replaces rigorous discipleship. Half-hearted church attendance is meaningless. Only wholehearted devotion to Christ will fill the hole in your heart.

If Christianity makes you half-hearted and complacent, you’ve somehow overlooked God’s grace. True Christianity is nothing less than loving, submitting to, and obeying Jesus wholeheartedly, but church trains people to be passive spectators and rarely makes room for wholehearted enthusiasts!

About Steve Simms

I like to look and think outside the box. In college I encountered Jesus Christ and I have been passionate about trying to get to know Him better ever since. My wife and I long to see the power and passion of the first Christ-followers come to life in our time. I have written a book about our experiences in non-traditional church, called, "Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible--Ekklesia." If you need encouragement, search for: Elephants Encouraging The Room and/or check out my Amazon author page. Thank you!
