Pastor Ken with his black curly hair and blue suit, walked up to the podium and cleared his voice and said, "Please open you Bibles and turn to Revelation three sixteen."

He waited a moment while the sound of pages turning all over the sanctuary. "So, because you are lukewarm—neither hot nor cold—I am about to spit you out of my mouth."

"Are you hot and walking the walk or are you cold and limping along? How do you handle difficult situations at work? How about when you are getting your car repaired, and the person behind the counter tells you it is going to cost and extra two hundred dollars to get your car fixed?"

"The problem today is Christians don't act like Christians. If were really hot for the Lord it will show in our actions. It is not easy to hold our tongue when someone tells us the bad news. When we deal with those hard situations that come up with other people we need to be Christ like."


**********************************************************

Later on pastor Ken gave a alter call, and prompted those who were at the service today to come up, if they have not walked the walk. Shelia a dark haired women in her forties approached Pastor Ken.

"Good morning Shelia," as Pastor Ken's blue eyes looked into her face.

Shelia got this serious look on her face, "Pastor, when I get stressed I don't treat my co-workers very well. I want to act better."

"I will pray for you today, but there are some things that you need to do," as the pastor laid his hands on Shelia shoulders.

Ken smiled and said, "You need to get into the word every day. You need to fast and ask the Lord to show you what you need to do to solve the problem. He will provide an answer. If you trust in him he will deliver you. It may not be right away, but keep on praying."

If we are hot for the Lord our walk and talk should match.

A good message for us. The pastor's advice is right on.

You probably don't need the last sentence - you can show what you're saying without stating it outright. Caught a couple of grammar and punctuation errors too, but nothing major.

Enjoyed this piece. A great message.
