Each day, as I seek to plunge further into the depths of my Daddy’s heart, I find myself being challenged at a greater level. I ask Him to show me His ways, and find myself in a state of bewilderment each time.
Last week, as God and I were hanging out, I asked Him a question:
“Papa, why does everyone seem so complacent? Should we not always hunger for more? Should we not be passionate and on fire? Why am I judged so fiercely by those around me for displaying such passion?”
He gently whispered to me and reminded me of a passage from Revelation.
“‘I know your works: you are neither cold nor hot. Would that you were either cold or hot! So, because you are lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of my mouth. For you say, I am rich, I have prospered, and I need nothing, not realizing that you are wretched, pitiable, poor, blind, and naked.
(Revelation 3:15-17 ESV)
He then said, “Laura, passion is not lukewarm. Those who are complacent in the mundaneness of every day life and do not have passion will be spit from my mouth.”
I will not lie. I googled the definition of mundane.
