References for Revelation 3:1

      2 Wake up and strengthen whatever you have left, teetering on the brink of death, for I've found that your works are far from complete in the eyes of my God.
      3 So remember what you received and heard. Hold on to it and change your hearts and lives. If you don't wake up, I will come like a thief, and you won't know what time I will come upon you.
      4 But you do have a few people in Sardis who haven't stained their clothing. They will walk with me clothed in white because they are worthy.
      5 Those who emerge victorious will wear white clothing like this. I won't scratch out their names from the scroll of life, but will declare their names in the presence of my Father and his angels.
      6 If you can hear, listen to what the Spirit is saying to the churches.
