Church Flow


Do you have a routine for your Sunday Morning? Do you get up early, make breakfast, and prepare for church? Do you plan lunch with the family afterwards? Do you go to church at all? Do you decide to claim the day for rest and watch a sermon on television? What does your church flow look like?

Is your church flow a weekly routine? Have you become a lukewarm Christian? Revelation 3:16 goes as follows: ôSo then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth. If you are a coffee drinker, imagine preparing yourself for that warm cup of coffee. The cup which was meant to bring a warm feeling to your chilly body is barely warm. It is not hot nor cold. No one enjoys sipping on something that is stored at the wrong temperature. You would probably like to spit it out. The Lord feels that same way. He will spit you out of his mouth if you are lukewarm. No, we are not talking about the temperature of a drink, but we are talking about your reverence for the Lord.

Are you hot or cold? The Lord would rather you be one or the other. Lukewarm is neither hot nor cold. It is in the middle. It is an undecided place. Indecisiveness is a characteristic of double-mindedness. One day you are hot. Another day you are cold. Eventually, you are lukewarm.

Is the Sunday morning church flow routine or is it an exciting time? Psalm 122:1 said it clearly. I was glad when they said unto me, Let us go into the house of the LORD. This sounds like this is the highlight of the week. When you come to know the Lord, you will know that the House of the LORD is the best place to be. I would say this is hot for the Lord.

Serving the Lord is a way of life. It is not something that can be turned off and on at our discretion. We must choose to live right. We must become rooted and grounded in the Word of God. We cannot live right if we do not know what the Word of God tells us. We should be hot when we get to the church. We should not rely on the church to excite us. When we think about the goodness of the Lord, we should be in the mood to give praises to the Lord. When praises go up, blessings come down.

Be Blessed.
