To be lukewarm is to have settled for the compromise which states that God is satisfied as long as I try to do my best, which is nothing other than a little bit of me and a little bit of Him. This person has not allowed the law to bring him to the end of himself where he desperately cries out: “O wretched man that I am! Who shall deliver me from the body of this death?“ He has never given up. He has never come to realize that without Christ he can do nothing. Every person who attempts to please God by his own efforts is lukewarm. Conversely, every person who has realized that Christ is His life is enthusiastic about the treasure he has found within – the pearl of great prize, and has thus discovered the eternal fire within. Lukewarm is defined as lacking enthusiasm and conviction. When the resurrected Christ refers to persons who are lukewarm he refers to persons who lack conviction that He is their life.
