Am I Lukewarm?
I've been reading a book called Crazy Love by Francis Chan for a class on Sunday night at church. It's a challenging book that keeps making me question how much I love God and how much I am willing to give Jesus. Chapter 4 is a profile of the lukewarm. Essentially, if I am not loving God with my all and loving my neighbor as much as I love me, I'm worthy of being spit out by Jesus. Chan proposes that if I am not sold out or "radical," I may not be a Christian at all. All is the standard, not just a standard for those called especially to be radical by God. I'm forced to examine and evaluate where I stand in my love for God and others. "Am I rich?" is another good question I should address soon.
