BIBLICAL EXAMINATION OF LAODICEA PEOPLE? - PART 18/19

A Self-Examination so that we can come into a closer walk that God desires us to be at.

LUKEWARM PEOPLE structure their lives so that they never have to live by faith. They don't have to trust God if something unexpected happens - they trust their savings account. They don't need God to help them - they have their retirement plan (and don't have faith in God if social security were to fail). They don't seek after a life that God would have them live - they have life planned. They don't depend on God on a daily basis - their refrigerators are full and, for the most part, they are in good health. The truth is, their lives wouldn't look much different if they suddenly stopped believing in God.

Luke 12:16-21
16 Then He spoke a parable to them, saying: "The ground of a certain rich man yielded plentifully. 17 And he thought within himself, saying, 'What shall I do, since I have no room to store my crops?' 18 So he said, 'I will do this: I will pull down my barns and build greater, and there I will store all my crops and my goods. 19 And I will say to my soul, "Soul, you have many goods laid up for many years; take your ease; eat, drink, and be merry." ' 20 But God said to him, 'Fool! This night your soul will be required of you; then whose will those things be which you have provided?' 21 So is he who lays up treasure for himself, and is not rich toward God."
