Christian Atheist Part 1

This past weekend, Jonathan began his final series at Eastside by talking about something really important to his heart ... living out what we say we believe in.

Here are the verses/thoughts that stood out to me in the message...

2 Timothy 3

5 They will act religious, but they will reject the power that could make them godly. Stay away from people like that!

Revelation 3

15 “I know all the things you do, that you are neither hot nor cold. I wish that you were one or the other!

16 But since you are like lukewarm water, neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of my mouth!

I can be just as lukewarm as the next “Jesus-follower”! I pray that God will reveal and remove any “religiosity” in my life that is an act and replace it with His Holy Spirit ... using the same power that raised Jesus from the dead to revive and renew and reignite my heart for Him, my passion for Him. I pray He does the same thing in your life and in your heart.
