What Is Your Reputation?

Read the Bible in a year by reading Revelation 3 today.
You have a reputation, because people know you as someone who lives a certain way, but do they know the truth about you? Jesus told John to write to the Sardis, saying,
“And to the angel of the church in Sardis write, ‘These things says He who has the seven Spirits of God and the seven stars: “I know your works, that you have a name that you are alive, but you are dead”‘” (Revelation 3:1).
That church had a reputation for being alive, but Jesus knew the church in truth and saw that it was dead. He knows the truth about us also. What does He know about us? We may have a reputation that is good, but He knows that we do not live up to that reputation. Or we may have a reputation for being evil, but again, He knows the truth, that we are good. Yes, we want to have a good reputation among men, but it is more important to have a good reputation with the Lord.
