Week five into our series looking at the Seven Letters to the Seven Church in Revelation, and this letter we are looking at is to Sardis.
The church in Sardis had a reputation – ‘the reputation of being alive, but you are dead’ says Jesus.
The believers there cared more about looking like they were following Jesus than actually following Jesus.
They cared more about conforming to the culture than holding on to their integrity.
We need this same wake-up call, the call to follow Jesus with our whole hearts, despite what the world says or offers. We need to ‘Get Real’ just like the church in Sardis.
May God bless you as your name is never blotted out in the book of life, but is acknowledged before our Father in heaven, as we hear this message, and as we are victorious.
In His Service, Pastor Ben
