Spiritual Complacency


By Matthew Angell, August 20, 2023

Revelation is more about a than a

Revelation 3:14-20 (NIV)

14 “To the angel of the church in Laodicea write: These are the words of the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the ruler of God’s creation.

15 I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot. I wish you were either one or the other! 16 So, because you are lukewarm—neither hot nor cold— I am about to spit you out of my mouth.

Complacency is a feeling of with oneself

17 You say, ‘I am rich; I have acquired wealth and do not need a thing.’ But you do not realize that you are wretched, pitiful, poor, blind and naked. 18 I counsel you to buy from me gold refined in the fire, so you can become rich; and white clothes to wear, so you can cover your shameful nakedness; and salve to put on your eyes, so you can see.

Spiritual complacency comes from

Without on God, we lose for God

1. You are stuck in the that you were a year ago

2. You for God’s Word

3. You go to God for what you can get , not because you

4. You about God in your conversations

19 Those whom I love I rebuke and discipline. So be earnest and repent. 20a Here I am! I stand at the door and knock.

20b If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with that person, and they with me.
