Welcome to learning and growing into a person who is not lukewarm. Curious as to where "not lukewarm" came from? It is from Revelation 3:16, "So, because you are lukewarm, neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of my mouth." Jesus is speaking to one of the seven churches and he is admonishing one for being neither hot nor cold and he tells them he will spit them out of his mouth. The first time I read that I realized I never wanted to be lukewarm, especially in my faith and love for Jesus. Rev 3:16 is a life verse for me, reminding me to the person God is calling me to be, each and every day.
I'm Deanna Bartalini and I want to help you live "not lukewarm" too! One of my greatest joys is to walk with people on their faith journey. I believe that the more you know about God and your faith, the more deeply you will fall in love with him. And when you fall in love with God, you want to reach out to others in gratitude. The Not Lukewarm podcast is about journeying together and learning how to live our faith every day.
