The Church of Sardis, Revelation 3:1–6
• Commendation—none! Both Sardis and Laodicea are without any commendation!
• Rebuke/Correction, vv. 1–3 Rebuked for spiritual deadness, imperfect works, called to be watchful (spiritual wake–up), strengthen what remains, remember God’s Word, hold fast, repent
• Promise to Overcomers, vv. 4–6
Note: There is a special promise to those who have not compromised. To “walk with Me in white,” is reminiscent of the Triumvirate, where the victorious general paid respect to warriors of conspicuous gallantry. Other overcomers will also be clothed in white, and none will be blotted from the Book of Life. Confession of Christ before men results in His confession of us before the Father.
