Sardis- Watchmen, Wake Up!

March 4, 2018 Speaker: Damian Mericka Series: Revelation Text

Topic: Sardis- Watchmen, Wake Up!

Title: Sardis- Watchmen, Wake Up!

Series: Revelation  

Text: Revelation 3:1-6

Main Idea: God’s Love Calls Us to Life!   


  1. Heritage of the Watchmen (Ezekiel 3:15-21)
  • From farms, to city walls the Watchmen come.
    • Called from among the people, Ezekiel must speak what he hears & sees from God.
    • A two-fold message from the Watchmen:
      • Repent from Sin, turn to God (Salvation)
      • Live out your new life (Relationship)
  1. The Legacy Continues (Revelation 3:1-3)
  • God steps into the lives of the people (v.1)
    • Watchmen failed the City, twice!
    • The threat comes from within not without
      • Outward: Alive / Inward: Dead
    • The Call to Wake Up! (v.2)
      • Strengthen what remain- death is overtaking.
    • The Warning of continued neglect (v.3)
      • A sick church hurts the work of the Kingdom.

III. Time to Move Forward (Revelation 3:4-6)

  • Multiply
    • Identify & Empower those who can lead others
  • Continue the Course
    • We haven’t arrived; celebration will come!
  • Let the inward flow outward: Alive & ALIVE!
    • Colossians 4:2-6

Going deeper questions (SMall Group)

  • What stood out to you about this sermon and why?
  • Who serves as a watchmen (person) in your life? Are you this for someone else?  If not, why not?
  • How can we be “awake” and fulfill our duties as watchmen over our own lives? How can we be faithful in this to others?

A hypocritical church is dangerous.  How can we keep the masks off and live genuinely?  How will Cornerstone avoid the danger of becoming like believers in Sardis?
