Francis Chan: lukewarm and loving it!


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pBhqrtMqrv8 Francis Chan preaches about being lukewarm Christian and I'm hit.
I finally figured it out when he says 'It's hard for the rich to enter the kingdom of God'  you see what Jesus was really trying to say is 'It's hard, for the rich, to enter the kingdom of God'
I like this part, however it also scares me at the same time. I came from a poor family on a poor country and I was striving to become rich. It actually once my primary goal in life.
We dissect the passage so much that we get so much blinded to what it is saying
This is really a good point, why do we have to complicate things that doesn't fit our comfort zone? We have to be like children that takes things literally and not try to be deep.
The kingdom of heaven is like a man who finds a treasure in a field, right? And he sees this treasure so great that he covers it back up and goes men, 'now let me just get rid of everything else I have cause I want that field so badly .. with great joy
The ability to give all up; being confused if it was God given or a distraction against my faith. To decide effortlessly between things of the world and God. To decide between giving the whole tithes or making  sure that my real estate investment won't be trashed.
Money does weird thing to people
Indeed it does. As I step up the "corporate ladder" or whatever mine is called, I am seeing the truth about money and I realize that no one will ever get enough of it, you will aimlessly want more and more of it.
We miss the point of the passage, by getting too into details
 
What concerns me most, is that some of you are lukewarm, you know you're lukewarm, but you want to be lukewarm, it's like you planned out your life this way. You've got enough God in your life. You don't want to be on fire.
I feel the guilt of being lukewarm and somehow feeling satisfied. Being able to ignore the danger of being spat out of the mouth of God.  
'ohh I don't know if I can give up this little thing on this piece of dirt form Him'
 
Those whom I love I rebuke and discipline. So be earnest and repent.
  It would definitely disgust God if I think twice deciding which I really want, the world or Him. I hope I won't get caught by the "junks" of this world. I hope I can make the wrongs in my life right. I hope I can be holy for him and if possible be sinless, I always pray for that but it's a struggle, in a matter of seconds after I'll end up doing the same sin over and over again. Indeed the door is narrow, but I'm not giving up.
