E. The Church in Sardis --
The Church in Reformation
1 And to the messenger of the church in 1Sardis write: These things says He who has the 2aseven Spirits of God and the 2bseven stars: I cknow your works, that you have a 3name that you are dliving, and yet you are edead.
2 Become awatchful and establish the 1things which remain, which were about to die; for I have found none of your works 2bcompleted before My God.
3 aRemember therefore how you have received and heard, and keep it and brepent. If therefore you will not watch, I will ccome as a 1dthief, and you shall by no means know at what ehour I will come upon you.
4 But you have a few names in Sardis who have not 1adefiled their garments, and they will walk with Me in 2bwhite because they are worthy.
5 He who 1aovercomes will be 2clothed thus, in bwhite garments, and I shall by no means 3cerase his name out of the 4dbook of life, and I will 5econfess his name before My Father and before His angels.
6 He who has an aear, let him hear what the bSpirit says to the churches.
