Bible: Rev 3:14-22

To the Church in Laodicea

3:14To 1  the angel of the church in Laodicea write the following: 2 

This is the solemn pronouncement of 3  the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the originator 4  of God’s creation: 3:15 I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot. 5  I wish you were either cold or hot! 3:16 So because you are lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I am going 6  to vomit 7  you out of my mouth! 3:17 Because you say, “I am rich and have acquired great wealth, 8  and need nothing,” but 9  do not realize that you are wretched, pitiful, 10  poor, blind, and naked, 3:18 take my advice 11  and buy gold from me refined by fire so you can become rich! Buy from me 12  white clothing so you can be clothed and your shameful nakedness 13  will not be exposed, and buy eye salve 14  to put on your eyes so you can see! 3:19 All those 15  I love, I rebuke and discipline. So be earnest and repent! 3:20 Listen! 16  I am standing at the door and knocking! If anyone hears my voice and opens the door I will come into his home 17  and share a meal with him, and he with me. 3:21 I will grant the one 18  who conquers 19  permission 20  to sit with me on my throne, just as I too conquered 21  and sat down with my Father on his throne. 3:22 The one who has an ear had better hear what the Spirit says to the churches.’
