    Speaking truth in love….yes, that’s exactly what you did!! Love the scripture you used to back up your thoughts.! You made so many good points and we all need these reminders!

  2. Hannah says:

    This is a powerful post. Sometimes it is important to speak the hard truth so that we can be transformed. All the points shared are so true, I need to do better in the area of love (I mean not just loving those who love me back but loving the unlovable too).

    This is an encouraging and also a serious post that every child of God should take seriously, I will continue to pray that God mould me to be more like him.

    • Michelle Ling says:

      Hey Hannah! I definitely need to also grow in so many of these areas too! And yes! This is definitely something I really believe should be spoken more about as well! Praying for you! x

  3. Stacey says:

    Michelle – this is amazing! This reminds me of the part in the War Room movie where the older lady and Priscilla are talking in the old ladies dining room and she serves Priscilla lukewarm coffee. I don’t know if you have ever seen it but this is so close to that message! I love this. I love the boldness and the truth. I love the honesty. The signs of a lukewarm Christian that you share are so real and prevalent today, unfortunately. May we all like our faith piping hot!

    • Michelle Ling says:

      Hey Stacey! Yes, I have seen War Room! It was such an awesome movie wasn’t it? It didn’t even cross my mind to think about that scene – but that scene is so relevant! Definitely loved when the older lady infused humour to make her very serious point of needing to live hot for Jesus 🙂

  4. Jen says:

    So good
    Thank you for sharing

  5. Kristie says:

    This is an awakening for all christians. We ought to examine our lifes constantly in order to remain steadfast. We shouldn’t be comfortable in a lukewarm state. Thanks for sharing.

    • Michelle Ling says:

      That’s so true Kristie! It’s always so important to keep examining the state of our lives! x 🙂

  6. Cindy says:

    Michelle- This is such a great post about the signs of a lukewarm Christian! The one about speaking truth hit home for me. It is easy to write about it ‘behind the screen’ but harder to talk about it to others in person. Keep doing what you’re doing! Blessings! Cindy

  7. DONNA MILLER says:

    What a convicting post! One of my fears is that I would slip into this area where I begin to display the signs of a lukewarm Christian. I want to be fully on fire for my beautiful Jesus! Don’t be concerned about posting the hard stuff. It is the hard that helps us all to grow … ❤

    • Michelle Ling says:

      Aw yes Donna! That is so good! I pray that both you and I will be on fire for the Lord together! x And thanks for the encouragement!

  8. Teresa says:

    It was so refreshing to read some hard-hitting (on the truth) words in a Christian blog! I would also add that lukewarm Christians are very uncomfortable with friends or family members who are pursuing God wholeheartedly. They want to douse those flames!

  9. Michelle, what a well thought out post on a very difficult subject. I have definitely struggled with some of these issues as I walk out my salvation. Thanks for the reminders.

    • Michelle Ling says:

      Oh that’s awesome Mary! I’m so glad that you’re continuously seeking truth as you walk out of your salvation! Thank you for the encouragement x

  10. Brandi says:

    This post gives great details on what it looks like to be a lukewarm Christian. Our responsibilities span far beyond salvation. Great post!

    • Michelle Ling says:

      Hey Brandi! It is true that we are saved by grace through faith alone, but any good works and fruits produced can be seen as evidence of that faith. So it is SO good to be on fire for Jesus! x

  11. Merry Ohler says:

    Thanks for sharing your heart to live for Christ!

  12. Merry Ohler says:

    Thanks for sharing your heart to live for Christ! It’s such encouragement to know that our transformation rests solidly in His capable hands.

    • Michelle Ling says:

      Thanks for the warmth and encouragement Merry! You’ve got such a positive and happy name! I love it! And it’s so true! Our transformation rests solidly in Him! x

  13. The title of your post, alone, is convicting. Some great points and insights that go right along with many I have. Thank you for your thoughtful thoughts and Biblical truths here.

  14. Heather says:

    I love your honesty. Being a luke warm Christian is an easy trap to fall into and we need to pray about it often. This is why David asks God to search his heart. Honestly, the idea God searching my heart is scary. Wonderful post!

    • Michelle Ling says:

      Thanks Heather! It’s always so good to be constantly convicted by Him! Loved your reference to David asking God to search His heart! x

  15. Summer says:

    Looking forward to reading your e-book on finding your identity in Christ, so that I can share it with my two pre-teens. And this post on being a lukewarm Christian is spot-on!

    • Michelle Ling says:

      That’s so sweet Summer! Thank you for your encouragement and warm words! I really hope your two sweet pre-teens will enjoy it! x

  16. Rachel Mayew says:

    Thanks for all of the scripture you’ve included! It is so important to give ourselves fully to God, rather than try and parcel ourselves out. I did that for a long time and can’t imagine why I thought I could ever keep hidden from God!

    • Michelle Ling says:

      Hahaha that is so true Rachel! I loved the way you put it… “parcel ourselves out”. And it is so comforting to know that we can never be kept hidden from the One who has known us from the beginning of time aye!

  17. Karen says:

    Some of these truths hit close to home. It is easy to let things slide in life thinking that we are still staying connected.

  18. Kayla Clyde says:

    Thank you for so boldly laying out the truth that the Bible declares about the followers of Christ. We are not called to be lukewarm Christians, but burning with passion for our God and King! I love how much you lean on Scripture throughout and that you say things so clearly 🙂 Thank you for writing this!

  19. Christine says:

    Wow! This is so powerful and message all Christians should hear! I was like this at one time, afraid to speak up and out, but the more I came in contact with other’s pain the more my heart pulled me to action! Thank you for sharing the hard truth but with love!

    • Michelle Ling says:

      I most definitely relate! Some moments I have been afraid to speak up but it always convicted me when I thought about how I might be the only physical and real world link someone has to knowing God and His salvation! So I definitely hope to grow in bravery too! x

  20. Jessie says:

    ” I had a blackened heart underneath the glowing exterior.” Oh, I felt this sentence so much. Looks like we walked similar paths, thank you for sharing your experiences <3

So let’s smile and live that set-apart life that God has created us for together. For He is the One who calls you by name and has loved you from the beginning of time! ❤️
