The fifth letter that Jesus has John write is to the Church in Sardis – the church of the walking dead.  They had a name that they were alive – but inside they were dead.  Think of the large churches in Rome or Scotland for instance.   Big, beautiful churches with stain glass and high ceilings.  But – they are dead.  The Spirit of God is not there – people are not coming to Jesus – the buildings are just buildings.  And Jesus says to John – tell this church in Sardis to wake up and strengthen what little remains.  For us that might mean –make sure we are truly a Christian, go back to church, pick up your bible, read a good Christian book.  Jesus says – WAKE UP!
