Martha served, while Lazarus was among those reclining at the table with him. 3 Then Mary took about a pint ...read more

    This was a loving church, serving, faithful, growing church; yet their toleration of false teaching was displeasing to Christ and harmful to people who were deceived by it. Change was needed and Jesus requires it if this church is to be overcomers.

     | 2,943 views

    Life was pretty good in Sardis. The lack of opposition may have given them a sense of security and lulled them to sleep. Since the world was relatively nice to them, they may have grown comfortable in their relationship with the pagan world around them.
