Today is a little different.
We are in Week 3 of The Christian Atheist series at church and yesterday, Pastor Craig Groeschel listed seven qualities of a lukewarm Christian. One part of this sermon screamed out loud to me! He said, “It is so easy to be a Christian where I live, that it’s almost difficult to be a true one.” #BibleBelt
He said that at one point in his ministry, he was, “reading the Bible to preach, not for personal devotion.”
THIS IS EVERYTHING. I felt the Holy Spirit tap on the door to my heart and say, “Hey. This. Make sure you’re sharing for the right reason.” Wow. One of the very characteristics of a lukewarm Christian is “craving the attention of people.” As hard as that is to type even, as I do not want that thought about me, ever, I feel it is necessary to mention. Accountability.
