Revelation 3, part 1

Dear Sardis...
This letter is almost like a so-called "Dear John" letter. Not that Jesus wants to break up with His church, but they have been unfaithful. It doesn't matter what we say about ourselves that matters, it is what Jesus sees and what Jesus says about us that matters most. 

Multiple times God's Word exhorts us to examine ourselves, to take stock regularly. It is too easy to drift, to slip into action without intention, to lose purpose and try to live off of what happened yesterday. Our relationship with God is to be an experience made fresh daily. Another superb message from the heart of Jesus for us is in this letter to Sardis.
