Church in Sardis

Revelation 3:1-6 NIV

To the Church in Sardis


1 “To the angel of the church in Sardis write:

These are the Words of Him Who holds the Seven Spirits of God and the seven stars. I know your deeds; you have a reputation of being alive, but you are dead.

 2 Wake up! Strengthen what remains and is about to die, for I have not found your deeds complete in the Sight of My God.

3 Remember, therefore, what you have received and heard; obey it, and repent. But if you do not wake up, I will come like a thief, and you will not know at what time I will come to you.

4 Yet you have a few people in Sardis who have not soiled their clothes. They will walk with Me, dressed in white, for they are worthy.

5 He who overcomes will, like them, be dressed in white. I will never blot out his name from the Book of Life, but will acknowledge his name before My Father and His angels.

6 He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.
