Here is a quick, easy-to-do method of evaluating just about any area of your life. It is really the “Jesus model” of ministry evaluation, but I think it works well also to determine your effectiveness in other areas, such as marriage, parenting, friendships or work.
Here is the formula:
Read Revelation 3:15-16
I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot. I wish you were either one or the other! So, because you are lukewarm — neither hot nor cold — I am about to spit you out of my mouth.
Apply that verse to evaluate your heart for whatever you are doing.
Jesus hated mediocrity, so shouldn’t we? In what areas of your life are you applying a half-hearted devotion?
