The Church of Inanimate Spirituality, Revelation 3:1-6
December 6, 2009 Speaker: Dr. David Silvernail Series: The King’s Triumphant Return - A Series in Revelation
Topic: Sermons Passage: Revelation 3:1–3:6
This Sunday, Pastor Dave preaches from Revelation 3:1-6 as we continue looking at the Seven Churches of Revelation; this week we're going to Sardis. This church thought it was fine, but it was dying spiritually and didn't even realize it.
Dr. John Stott wrote about this type of church, "I wonder if anything is more urgent today, for the honor of Christ and for the spread of the gospel, than what the church should be, and should be seen to be, what by God's purpose and Christ's achievement it already is -- a single new humanity, a model of human community, a family of reconciled brothers and sisters who love their Father and love each other, the evident dwelling place of God by His Spirit. Only then will the world believe in Christ as Peacemaker. Only then will God receive the glory due to His name."
As we celebrate Advent, it should be our desire that through our church, God will receive the glory due His name.
