"Temperature Words" in the New Testament


Also: Warm and Lukewarm

NOTE: The "temperature" words used in these verses are also found in some other passages. But there probably isn't much "spiritual impact" in meditating on the fact that "it was cold outside," or other such statements!

  1. Living for God; Living a Life of Love  
  2. A Life Filled with Love... or Filled with the World
  3. Encouraging Others (Especially Leaders)
  4. Enduring Hardship; Helping Others
