Chan on Lukewarm Christians 4

crazy love.jpg

Lukewarm Christians don’t really want to be saved from their sin; they only want to be saved from the penalty of their sin. They don’t genuinely hate sin and aren’t truly sorry for it; they’re merely sorry because God is going to punish them. Lukewarm people don’t really believe that this new life Jesus offers is better than the old sinful one.

John 10:10
The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life and have it abundantly.

Rom 6:1-2
What shall we say then? Are we to continue in sin that grace may abound? By no means! How can we who died to sin still live in it?
