Craig Groeschel, pastor of LifeChurch.tv, has a good post on what to do when you’re feeling lukewarm in your relationship with Jesus. Here’s a clip:
Question: What do you do when you realize you are lukewarm?
Answer: You do something drastic!
If some small change would have made the difference in your spiritual life, you would have made the change a long time ago.
Groeschel lists a few things you could do to make a change. Here a few:
- Start a seven day fast and devote extra time to seeking God.
- Take the week off and go to a hotel alone with no cell phone, no computer, and no books but the Bible.
- Read a children’s bible and pretend like you’re hearing the gospel story for the very first time.
- Repent to your family for your lack of spiritual passion and leadership.
What would you put on the list? Maybe something drastic is necessary. And maybe something drastic is totally worth it in light of what’s at stake.
