Holy White Garment
(Revelation 3.3-6)
Page 62

"Remember, therefore, what you have received and heard; hold it fast, and repent. But if you do not wake up, I will come like a thief, and you will not know at what time I will come to you. Yet you have a few people in Sardis who have not soiled their clothes. They will walk with me, dressed in white, for they are worthy. The one who is victorious will, like them, be dressed in holy white garments. I will never blot out the name of that person from the Book of Life, but will acknowledge that name before my Father and his angels. Whoever has ears, let them hear what the Spirit says to the churches.'" (Revelation 3.3-6)✞

Walk With Jesus

Cloth MakingRather than soiled clothing in this cloth-making city, a few who remained faithful would be given holy white garments to wear. Twice in its history, Sardis had fallen to enemies even despite its imposing vertical walls and fortifications because it had not kept watch. "Remember, therefore, what you have received and heard; hold it fast," said the Lord. They were instructed to "repent, turn from their sin and come back to God." Failure meant that Christ would come to them when they least expected it "like a thief in the night."
