Revelation 3:14-22 – A Needy Church Without Need
1. The phrase, “you are neither cold nor hot” indicates that their faith was useless. Cold water is used for drinking and hot water is used for cooking. A “lukewarm” faith indicates uselessness. How does God respond to this kind of faith and how can followers of Jesus have a useful faith? See James 2:14-26.
2. Jesus says, “Those whom I love, I reprove and discipline, so be zealous and repent” in verse 19. What’s your reaction to Jesus’ strong warning and how is what He says good news?
3. Every letter in Revelation 2 and 3 ends with the words, “whoever has ears, let them hear what the Spirit says to the churches.” What is the Spirit saying to you through this letter? How will you live differently in light of that message?
