Bible: Revelation 3:1-6

To the Church in Sardis

3:1To 1  the angel of the church in Sardis write the following: 2 

This is the solemn pronouncement of 3  the one who holds 4  the seven spirits of God and the seven stars: ‘I know your deeds, that you have a reputation 5  that you are alive, but 6  in reality 7  you are dead. 3:2 Wake up then, and strengthen what remains that was about 8  to die, because I have not found your deeds complete 9  in the sight 10  of my God. 3:3 Therefore, remember what you received and heard, 11  and obey it, 12  and repent. If you do not wake up, I will come like a thief, and you will never 13  know at what hour I will come against 14  you. 3:4 But you have a few individuals 15  in Sardis who have not stained 16  their clothes, and they will walk with me dressed 17  in white, because they are worthy. 3:5 The one who conquers 18  will be dressed like them 19  in white clothing, 20  and I will never 21  erase 22  his name from the book of life, but 23  will declare 24  his name before my Father and before his angels. 3:6 The one who has an ear had better hear what the Spirit says to the churches.’
