Do Or Do Not ~ There Is No Try...

Now that I've gotten the attention of any Star Wars fans who may read our blog, you may know that Jesus says something similar (sans Yoda speak) in Revelation when He's addressing one of the seven churches:

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. Rev. 3:15-16

We often tell husbands to make a decision to either do this or not, that is, become a Christlike husband and be with his wife the way God calls him to, because if he's just half in, or just trying, or only lukewarm, he might as well forget it. The worst thing he can do is just enough to get by...just enough to get his wife feeling somewhat safe again...just enough to get back into the house (and into her bed)...and then...


I really do mean this. It's the absolute worst.

So, husband, if you know you're not going to love your wife unconditionally (for the rest of your life) or lay your life down for her (for the rest of your life) or live with her in understanding (for the rest of your life) or make her your number one priority (for the rest of your life) then have the balls to tell her because lukewarm just doesn't cut it. It's not worth it for you or her. Nor your kids for that matter. Or your family or your church family or your job or the world.

I'm just sayin'.

Coffee should be drunk while it's hot; iced tea while it's cold. Get the picture?
