Is your God the Lord of everything in your life or are you still stuck on worldly things? Sometimes we have to be honest with ourselves in order to change. So ask yourself, are you a lukewarm Christian?
Lukewarm Christian: Someone who will admit they believe in God but never gain a relationship with Him through the Word. Someone who will continue to sin because they don’t want to stop having fun. Someone who thinks that they can put Christ off until later on in life. Someone who cares more about the world and its possessions than their loving God.
If this is you right now, what is stopping you from that burning passion for God? That craving to live for Him and not for this world? He is so worthy of our praise and wants to have an intimate relationship with you.
If you don’t want to be that lukewarm Christian anymore, pray. Be honest with God and ask Him for that desire. Next, read God’s word. God’s word can do so much.
“For the word of God is full of living power. It is sharper than the sharpest knife, cutting deep into our innermost thoughts and desires. It exposes us for what we really are.” Hebrews 4:12
“And now I entrust you to God and his care and to his wonderful words that are able to build your faith and give you all the inheritance of those who are set apart for himself.” Acts 20:32
Remember to have patience as well. Things will not happen over night but if you truly put your heart to it, the fire and passion will come. You will begin to live fully for Christ and see changes in you and your life that are wonderful.
It is never too late to start living fully for Christ.
