Different Church

Sardis
Junction of 5 roads - wealthy in trade - very commercial
Lazy - conquered 2x - located on steep hill
Persecution of other churches not mentioned
Still about Jesus
Tied back to the opening of Revelation 1
Who has = who is in control
City of the Living Dead
No persecution - not doing anything worth it
John 10:10 why Jesus came
John 10:10 ESV
The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life and have it abundantly.
City of the Living Dead
Incomplete works
Wake up = Be watchful
Started but didn’t finish - stuck as a baby
1 Corinthians 13:11 ESV
When I was a child, I spoke like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I gave up childish ways.
Fully Alive
Remember -
The Gospel - death to life
Come together
Acts 2:42 ESV
And they devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers.
Fully Alive
Proclaim - live lives of worship
1 Peter 2:9-10
1 Peter 2:9–10 ESV
But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for his own possession, that you may proclaim the excellencies of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light. Once you were not a people, but now you are God’s people; once you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy.
Fully Alive
Church not on mission - not a church
Great commission
Matthew 28:19 ESV
Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,
All In
80 - 20 rule
Everyone has a role
Every one has a job

Give me one hundred preachers who fear nothing but sin and desire nothing but God, and I care not whether they be clergymen or laymen, they alone will shake the gates of Hell and set up the kingdom of Heaven upon Earth.

- John Wesley
