Revelation 3:14-22

Seek moderation as a Christian.  Do not seek to be a lukewarm Christian.

Christ's Identity:

  • His word is true.  Revelation 3:14
  • His word is authoritative.  Revelation 3:14

Christ's Charge:

  • You are indifferent.  Revelation 3:15-16
  • You are arrogant.  Revelation 3:17

Christ's Invitation:

  • Wake up!  Revelation 3:18-19
  • Open up!  Revelation 3:20

Christ's Offer:

  • Overcome!  Revelation 3:21-22

Mercury is hot.  Pluto is cold.  Why?  Because Mercury is close to the sun and Pluto is far away from the sun.  The farther you get from the sun, the colder things become.  The closer you get to the sun, the hotter things are.  You may say that you are not a Pluto Christian nor a Mercury Christian.  Maybe you are an earth Christian, where things get hot and cold - a seasonal Christian who changes with the season.  Is it possible that the Son is looking for us to be in orbits that move closer and closer to Him?
