This Sunday we continue studying the Letters to the Seven Churches. This week it is the Letter to the Church at Sardis, Revelation 3:1-6.
The church at Sardis had the reputation of being alive—vibrant, Spirit-filled, open to God’s work, obedient to God’s Word. But as Jesus looked at this church, he saw a deeper reality. The church was not wicked or immoral, but dead, unresponsive to Christ. As the Scriptures are read, listen for what was it that led to Jesus’ evaluation of this church. Would you come to the same conclusion as Jesus?
