THE CHURCH OF SARDIS

January 23, 2012

The church of Sardis was located in the city rebuilt by the Romans. This city was known for its’ trade, military center, and manufacture of woolen garments.

Jesus greets this church identifying His composition of the seven spirits (Isaiah 11:2) and control of the leadership.

This church was found lacking. They were known to be influential, yet spiritually lifeless. For this they were rebuked. This church was encouraged to repent, be alert, build on things that were spiritually correct, and to remember and endorse former teachings.

Jesus commends the true remnant who will walk with Him. The promise to the overcomers were their names in the book of life and representation to God

The characteristics of this church were that of a well-known influential church. Their state was lethargic and deteriorating.

The lesson to be learned from this church is a great name means nothing to God. What he desires to see is the power of the Holy Spirit in operation. As believer, let us repent for our slothfulness, and become vigilant to the things of God.
