A few clean garments

Revelations 3:4 ‘But you have a few people in Sardis who have not soiled their garments; and they will walk with Me in white, for they are worthy.

Rev 3:14 – 16. “To the angel of the church in Laodicea write: The Amen, the faithful and True Witness, the Beginning of the creation of God, says this: ‘I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot; I wish that you were cold or hot. ‘So because you are lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of My

For a few years Faye and I attended, and then became members of Portage Chapel United Methodist church where we were married. We enjoyed our friends while there and enjoyed the fellowship, but nothing really changed in our spiritual life. There is nothing really wrong with having good fellowship and fun with our friends as long as it does not keep us from a proper relationship with God. As I remember it now, the Sunday service began by someone reading a verse or two, and then the Pastor preaching mostly psychological or self help messages. Every once in a while I was convicted about something, so maybe a spiritual message was offered now and then, but with out much effect on me. I look back with more wisdom now about how little I was pleasing the Lord, but at that time I was right in there with the rest of them. I am not trying to judge them, that is for the Lord to do. I don’t want to be to harsh on that congregation because I was just as bad, maybe worse. The question I have in my mind is, are we any better today? It appears we might be worse.

Ecclesiastes 12:13-14 The conclusion, when all has been heard, is: fear God and keep His commandments, because this applies to every person. For God will bring every act to judgment, everything which is hidden, whether it is good or evil. 

What would happen if Jesus visited us as he did John? Would He say “only a few of you are worthy to walk in white with Me” How many that claim to be disciples Jesus would end up with the ruler (Satan) of the world, How many would Jesus spit out of His mouth?
