3:18 I advise you to buy from Me gold refined by fire, that you may become rich, and white garments, that you may clothe yourself, and that the shame of your nakedness may not be revealed; and eye salve to anoint your eyes, that you may see.
I advise you to BUY FROM ME
For a church so involved in materialism (apparently from all the wealth of the city), to ask them to "BUY" points an accusing finger at them and says they don't have everything SPIRITUALLY. In fact, they have just enough spiritualism to make them "lukewarm".
Our SIN, unconfessed and unforgiven by the Lord, is our nakedness. Only the white cloth of righteousness can hide our nakedness when we receive our white clothes and put them on.
Eyesalve impedes the "dazzling splendor" of the world's light. The devil can make material things look so good. But eyesalve has another function: that of healing. It opens understanding to the hope of our calling - Ephesians 1:18; it removes the world's blinders - 2 Corinthians 4:4-6.
This verse indicates that the lukewarmness of Laodicea is not the laxity of Christians but rather the condition of not really knowing Christ. They may have accepted Him as their Savior BUT they have kept control of their life, i.e. haven't made Him their Lord.
What is your position today? Lukewarm because He isn't the complete Lord and Boss over your life?
