Potential Discussion Using this GameFull of Hot Air: Now we know which team is “full of hot air.” The phrase “full of hot air” refers to someone who is not sincere and though they boast loudly about doing certain things will have no practical results. I wonder how many of us are like that as Christians? Do we proclaim to be Christians but have fail to live the Christian life?
Do you make commitments and never follow through? What are some of the things you are committed to in your relationship with God? The church at Laodicea (rev 3:14-22) was referred to as lukewarm – They were neither hot nor cold. This is a similar concept. In this case God would prefer us to be completely committed or not committed at all rather than to make claims and never follow through. How can you be more committed in your relationship with God?
