Profile of the Lukewarm

“Lukewarm people don’t really want to be saved from their sin; they want only 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.

‘I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.’ (John 10:10)

‘What shall we say, then? Shall we go on sinning that grace may increase? By no means! We died to sin; how can we live in it any longer?’ (Romans 6:1-2)”

– Francis Chan, Crazy Love,  p.70
