The Letter to Sardis

1 "To the angel of the church in Sardis write: "The One who has the seven spirits of God a and the seven stars says: I know your works; you have a reputation b for being alive, but you are dead.
2 Be alert and strengthen c what remains, which is about to die, for I have not found your works complete before My God.
3 Remember therefore what you have received and heard; keep it, and repent. But if you are not alert, I will come d like a thief, and you have no idea at what hour I will come against you. e
4 But you have a few people f in Sardis who have not defiled g their clothes, and they will walk with Me in white, because they are worthy.
5 In the same way, the victor will be dressed in white clothes, and I will never erase his name from the book of life, but will acknowledge his name before My Father and before His angels.
6 "Anyone who has an ear should listen to what the Spirit says to the churches.
