Introduction What I am going to give to you today is not a message for the faint of heart.

And as I prayed to God asking Him to help me preach the truth in love, I was…
The Corinthian Correspondence
Pastor Glenn • Grace United Family Church • Sermon • • 40 views • 53:27
Life is full of tests. For most of us, tests are to be shunned, while others don't seem to mind so much. And those who don't mind are the ones who are prepared to take their tests. But like it or not, there is a test that every person on the planet must take. And pass. Eternity lliterally hangs in the balance. What is that test? How does one prepare for it? Most importantly how does one pass the test? Come with the Grace United crew as we discover, prepare for, and pass the only test that really matters.

Their pastor needed a spiritual resurrection, their church folks needed spiritual revival, but thank God, there was still a spiritual remnant.

Three years ago this month, I had a table saw accident which damaged two fingers on my left hand. It was, like most injuries, completely avoidable. I hurried. I took a shortcut. I was inattentive to the risk. It is a blessing that the ends of my fingers grew back. The consequence, however, was nerve…
A Responsive Church in a Changing Culture
David Krueger • Sermon • • 5 views
The Lord of Glory has a message for the church today: Religious activity is not necessarily an indication of true spiritual vitality within a local congregation.
Intro: Sardis was an important commercial city located about 30 miles southeast of Thyatira. It was located on an important trade route that ran east and west through the kingdom of Lydia.

The church in Sardis was known was the dead church. Jesus told them they had a reputation for being alive, but they were really dead spiritually. There are a lot of dead churches in the world today. As we celebrate Pentecost Sunday, we need a renewed emphasis on the fire of Pentecost in our churches. We need the fire of Pentecost in our (1) Pulpits, (2) Pews, (3) Programs, (4) Prayers, and (5) Praise.

The Book of Revelation
In this sermon we consider the words of Christ to the church in Sardis. Much like the modern day church, the church in Sardis sought to have a high reputation among men, but did not seek the glory that comes from God. They were filled with apathy towards the things of God, & therefore Jesus rebuked them as being “asleep.” Christ calls this church & anyone in this state of spiritual slumber, to wake up, & remember the Gospel by which we are called to offer up our whole selves to the whole Christ!
Christ's Message to the Seven Churches

Have you ever noticed a tall tree with thick branches which has blown over in a storm? Outside it looks like a strong and healthy, but when you look inside, it's hollow and dying. That's how it was for the church in Sardis. On the outside, they looked like they were alive and relevant, but in reality they were dying. Let's see what God has to say to this church.

The story of the church in Sardis is the saddest of all the seven churches. It’s a story of tremendous pride, as well as an illustration of how pride goeth before destruction, and an haughty spirit before a fall (Prov. 16:18). It stands as a warning to those who think they can stand before God dressed…

Who are we, as a church? Why are we here? Are we doing what God wants us to do? Are we doing things the way God wants us to do them? And, Where are we going? I have been thinking about these things recently. We have been here for four years now. And God has done great things through us. We have a reputation…
