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)
