Edifier du Jour-Revelation 3:14-16(NASB)
14 "To the angel of the church in Laodicea write: The Amen, the faithful and true Witness, the Beginning of the creation of God, says this: 15 'I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot; I wish that you were cold or hot. 16 'So because you are lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of My mouth.
If Satan can't drive someone away from Christ, he can make their faith so bland that it becomes unattractive or make them so compacent that they don't have the desire to bring others to Christ. If someone really turns their back on God, eventually they'll notice that they were once closer that they were and come back. However, what is more pernicious is when someone gradually grows cold; you don't have to put a hot meal into the freezer to have it become distastful, you just have to leave it out and let it cool down. If your faith has assumed room temperature, it's dead. How long has your faith been out of the oven of fellowship, the stove of study of the Word or the microwave of prayer?
