Observation

What can we learn from this passage about how a church appears versus its true state?

Application

Spend some time evaluating the true level of your obedience to and witness for Christ.

Prayer

Pray today’s Scripture back to God:
Dear Father, It is so easy for me to go through the motions and give the impression that I am living for you, when I am really spiritually weak and just deceiving myself, like the people in the church at Sardis. I pray that You would keep me from falling into that trap, and that instead I would realize that I have very little strength, and so I need to rely on you and hold onto Your grace completely. I ask this in the name of Jesus. Amen.

Pray to BLESS!

One good way to pray for people is to use the acronym BLESS to pray for God’s blessing on every area of their lives:

  • B – BODY (physical health)
  • L – Labor (their job or school)
  • E – Emotions (emotional health as well as guarding against letting emotions rule)
  • S – Social (relationships with family, friends, co-workers, neighbors, church, etc)
  • S – Spiritual (remaining true to God and growing in Him)
