The Church in Laodicea | Revelation 3:14-22

A. The State of the Culture in Laodicea
2. Famous for:
a. Finance and banking
b. Fashion (black wool)
c. Medicine
3. Situated midway between Colossae and Hierapolis
B. The State of the Church in Laodicea
1. Jesus defines Himself to Laodicea.
a. I am the Amen.
1) We can trust His promises.
2) We need to heed His warnings.
b. I am the Faithful and True Witness.
1) To miss Christ is to be doomed.
2) Jesus is why we are acceptable to God.
c. I am the Creator of the Universe.
1) Jesus is the source of all.
2) The church’s wealth and prosperity are meaningless and useless apart from being completely centered in Christ.
2. Jesus’ condemnation of the church
a. Neither cold, nor hot, but lukewarm
C. The Remedy to the State of the Church in Laodicea
1. Buy spiritual gold from Christ. (1 Peter 1:6-7)
2. Buy white clothing from Christ. (Revelation 19:8)
3. Buy spiritual eye salve from Christ. (2 Corinthians 4:6)
D. We Have Ears, Let Us Listen
1. The standing Christ
“Here I am! I stand at the door…” Revelation 3:20a (NIV)
2. The knocking Christ
“…and knock.” Revelation 3:20b (NIV)
3. The pleading Christ
“If anyone hears My voice and opens the door…” Revelation 3:20c (NIV)
4. The life-changing Christ
“…I will come in…” Revelation 3:20d (NIV)
5. The relational Christ
“…and eat with that person, and they with Me.” Revelation 3:20e (NIV)
A Picture of a Lukewarm Church
1. Half-committed: Stressing ritual, ceremony, and programs as ways to being accepted by God. Luke 9:23
2. Half-committed to proclaiming that Jesus is the Son of God. 1 John 2:22-23
3. Half-committed to teaching the Word of God. 2 Timothy 3:16
4. Half-committed to evangelism, discipleship, and missions. Acts 1:8
5. Half-committed to stressing holy and pure living, a.k.a. dead moralism. 1 Peter 1:16
6. Half-committed to the church. Hebrews 10:25
7. Half-committed to witnessing. Matt. 28:16-20
8. Half-committed to a daily walk with Jesus. Luke 9:23
Bottom Line:
Half-hearted effort does not produce half results; it produces no results.
