You Make Me Sick

“You make me sick!” These were the words of Jesus to the the church of the Laodiceans. Why? Because they were neither hot nor cold, but lukewarm. The Greek word for lukewarm is the word we get our word emetic from which means something that makes you regurgitate. Because they were lukewarm, Jesus says He would “spew” them out of His mouth. That word spew doesn’t have the full thrust of the original meaning. (pun intended) The word carries with it the idea of extreme disgust and violent reaction. Here was a group of people that called themselves a church, but Jesus was actually on the outside knocking to get in. I only made it through point one of four on Sunday morning, so I conclude the message on Sunday night. You can listen to these messages by following these links: Part 1 | Part 2 or visit our sermons page.
