Letting Jesus In (Revelation 3:14-22)Ken Miller, January 11, 2015
Part of the Sermon series, preached at a Sunday Morning service
|« Someone With Authority||None||Resetting The Vision »|
Ken Miller preached our message today on Revelation 3:14-22 about the lukewarm church of Laodicea.
The cure for lukewarmness is to open the door to Jesus. “Behold I stand at the door and knock.” It is for everyone; it is the voice calling every name; this is our message for the world. Prosperity has the potential of making people poor. Material prosperity gives an illusion of success and security. Prosperity undermines thankful hearts. Prosperity creates a fast pace of life.
May God give us a vision that we can see the things that are not seen.
14And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God; 15I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. 16So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth. 17Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked: 18I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see. 19As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent. 20Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me. 21To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne. 22He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches. (KJV)
