Scripture of the Day - July 27, 2012

Revelation 3:1 I know thy works, that thou hast a name that thou livest, and art dead.

Jesus is telling the church at Sardis that he knows their track record and where they stand now. The "members" of the Sardis church had lost what the founders once had. With false teachers constantly bombarding the church with thoughts of "that's not for today" the church had slipped into a very dangerous place. The people were not truly born again and Jesus warned them to wake up and strengthen what little remains. They had a reputation for being alive but in reality they were dead because what they were doing was incomplete! They had to get back to basics and do what the Apostles did... If not, they were going to be in for a rude awakening!!
2  Be watchful, and strengthen the things which remain, that are ready to die: for I have not found thy works perfect before God.
3  Remember therefore how thou hast received and heard, and hold fast, and repent. If therefore thou shalt not watch, I will come on thee as a thief, and thou shalt not know what hour I will come upon thee.
Folks, we have to hold fast to the doctrine that was once delivered to the saints. A watered down salvation will not get you into heaven.
