Your enthusiasm becomes their enthusiasm; your lukewarm presentation becomes their lukewarm interest in what you're offering.

Beautiful Lukewarm quotations

As God can send a nation or people no greater blessing than to give them faithful, sincere and upright ministers, so the greatest curse that God can possibly send upon a people in this world is to give them over to blind, unregenerate, carnal, lukewarm and unskilled guides.

Either be hot or cold. If you are lukewarm, the Lord will spew you forth from His mouth.

Never forget that God tests his real friends more severely than the lukewarm ones.

All the evils of the world are due to lukewarm Catholics.

Lukewarm people don't really want to be saved from their sin;

they want only to be saved from the penalty of their sin.

I do not think the devil cares how many churches you build, if only you have lukewarm preachers and people in them.

Comfort kills! If your goal in life is to be comfortable, I guarantee two things. First, you will never be rich. Second, you will never be happy.

Fat loss is an all-out war. Give it 28 days - only 28 days. Attack it with all you have. It's not a lifestyle choice; it's a battle. Lose fat and then get back into moderation.

There are three intolerable things in life - cold coffee, lukewarm champagne, and overexcited women.

Others live on in a careless and lukewarm state - not appearing to fill Longfellow's measure: 'Into each life, some rain must fall.'

I will not be modest. Humble, as much as you like, but not modest. Modesty is the virtue of the lukewarm.

As I see it, a lukewarm Christian is an oxymoron;

there is no such thing. To put it plainly, churchgoers who are 'lukewarm' are not Christians. We will not see them in heaven.

Lukewarm people don't really want to be saved from their sin;

they want only to be saved from the penalty of their sin. They don't genuinely hate sin and aren't truly sorry for it; they're merely sorry because God is going to punish them. Lukewarm people don't really believe that this new life Jesus offers is better than the old sinful one.

Sales were lukewarm. Back home there was no freedom, but there were readers. Here there was freedom enough, but readers were missing.

it becomes lack of power to act with courage proportionate to danger. All this must lead to the destruction of our intellectual life unless the danger summons up strong personalities able to fill the lukewarm and discouraged with new strength and resolution.

Lukewarm people do not live by faith; their lives are structured so that they don't have to.

How good it is for us when the Lord unsettles our lukewarm and superficial lives.

Here is the life of prayer, when in or with the Spirit, a man being made sensible of sin, and how to come to the Lord for mercy; he comes, I say, in the strength of the Spirit, and crieth Father. That one word spoken in faith is better than a thousand prayers, as men call them, written and read, in a formal, cold, lukewarm way.

Lukewarm acceptance is more bewildering than outright rejection.

Love is kindled in a flame, and ardency is its life.

Flame is the air which true Christian experience breathes. It feeds on fire; it can withstand anything rather than a feeble flame; but when the surrounding atmosphere is frigid or lukewarm, it dies, chilled and starved to its vitals. True prayer must be aflame.

Lukewarm people call 'radical' what Jesus expected of all His followers.
