Welcome to the fifth message in our series, A Word to the Church. Today, we're learning about Jesus' Letter to the Spiritually Dead—and remember as you listen, that when we look into these churches, we inevitably see ourselves! Jesus here addresses the church in Sardis, a city that enjoyed luxury and self-indulgence but suffered from apathy. Its Christians were relaxed, content, comfortable—but dead. Jesus pleads with the church in Sardis to wake up before it's too late, a message that especially resonates today.
