The Bible Verse That Every Lukewarm Catholic Should Read…

If I had to describe my Catholic faith for most of my life, one word comes to mind…

LUKEWARM!

Even though I’ve always been a “practicing” Catholic, most of my life was spent simply going through the motions.??Although I would go to Mass each week, my mind was on the “important” things that I had to do?when I got out of Church.? After receiving the Lord in Holy Communion, I would?look around, daydream and think about what I should?have for lunch.? I’d grab my?bulletin and?head for my car, happy that I fulfilled?my duty as a Catholic and even happier that I wouldn’t have to go again for another week!?

In 2005, a health scare caused me to abandon my uncaring ways and start caring about my faith in a BIG way!? As someone who finally realizes the treasure we have in the Catholic Church, I have dedicated my life to sharing the “Good News” with as many people as possible.? While I fully believe that the Lord used my illness to get my attention, I wonder how long He was actually calling me before I finally listened??

While I can’t guarantee that it would have brought about my reversion sooner, I believe that the following Bible verse may done the trick.? It should get the attention of?every?lukewarm Catholic.? I don’t know how the Lord could be any more blunt with His message.? It’s a message that is directed to anyone who doesn’t care that they don’t know more about their Catholic faith.? It’s a message that just may have gotten me to “wake up” several?years ago.? It’s a message you should share with any lukewarm Catholics you care about…

“I know your works; I know that you are neither cold nor hot.? I wish you were either cold or hot. ?So, because you are lukewarm, neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of my mouth.”? (Revelation 3:15-16)
