Revelation 3: 14-22

 By Kelly Bridgewater

 To the Church in Laodicea

14 “And to the angel of the church in Laodicea write: ‘The words of the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of God's creation.

15 “‘I know your works: you are neither cold nor hot. Would that you were either cold or hot! 16 So, because you are lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of my mouth. 17 For you say, I am rich, I have prospered, and I need nothing, not realizing that you are wretched, pitiable, poor, blind, and naked. 18 I counsel you to buy from me gold refined by fire, so that you may be rich, and white garments so that you may clothe yourself and the shame of your nakedness may not be seen, and salve to anoint your eyes, so that you may see. 19 Those whom I love, I reprove and discipline, so be zealous and repent. 20 Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and eat with him, and he with me. 21 The one who conquers, I will grant him to sit with me on my throne, as I also conquered and sat down with my Father on his throne. 22 He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.’” (English Standard Version. Bible


Wow! A Scripture to definitely describe America anymore. We are so lukewarm, and we do nothing for the sake of the church. We believe in God, but we are not on fire for him. Sometimes we are afraid to spread the love of God and talk about him because what will someone else to doesn’t believe it God will stay. I believe, now, it is more important than ever to shine the light of Jesus. Our country is hurting. Our country is begging for a reprieve from all the hate and anger in our world. This is evident by the people who voted for Joe Biden to be our president. (I did not vote for this uncapable president!) Our country is crying out for redemption. It is time for everyone who knows the light to make a stand.

Or there won’t be a place of FREEDOM and Peace left for our children to call home.
