What is Revival?



Revival is getting back on the path, getting the goal in view again, and pursuing with new passion the One who can make your life more than you ever dreamed.

Revival is simply: God, gladly at the center of my life, experienced and enjoyed. I see God working. He’s working in my life, and I’m loving it more and more. That’s revival.

Maybe you remember a time when you were fired up about the Lord, but somehow you drifted away. Maybe you’ve become like that guy in the lawn chair at the entrance of a church; you’re showing up, but you’re missing the mark. Maybe you could say, “Somewhere along the line I lost my passion for the Lord.” Well, you can have it back, and God wants you to have it back! God wants that reviving for each one of us, and there’s no biblical reason to doubt it.

But don’t attempt to be revived if you have never been vived in the first place. Can you tell a story like this?

There was a time in my life when I was going the wrong way. And the Lord reached out and brought me to the cross. By faith I experienced the forgiveness of sin that Jesus died and rose again to provide. At that time my eyes were opened, my heart was gripped, my life was captured by the grace of God; and I have never been the same since.

Have you found that new life in Christ? Have you had a conversion experience? Have you been vived? Don’t get the card before the horse. There is no point in pursuing re-vival if you have never been vived. If you would like to speak to someone about a personal relationship with Jesus you can call the church office.

All for Jesus,

Bro. James
