Text: Rev 3:1-6 | Series: Revelation 1-3

A Church can look active and alive on the outside but may be dead inside. This is not a church that pleases God.

The message to the Church at Sardis, the dead church, highlights the following for us:

  • A church that is asleep can appear to be healthy
  • A church that is asleep will eventually be exposed
  • A church that is asleep has unconverted members
  • A church that is asleep, by God’s grace, can change

The message calls for the asleep church to wake up through God’s grace and to come humbly before Him to repent of sins. That includes overcoming inequities and forgiving others.

Yet, take heart. True Christians will never have their names blotted from the Book of Life!
