Is Revival Coming?

That question is difficult to answer. We are having a meeting that we call revival March 16-19, but does having a meeting for 4 days constitute revival? For me the answer is a big fat NO! Revival is not guarnteed at any time. Is revival even a New Testament thing? Again I think the answer is no. You can read it over and over again and you will never find the word revival in the New Testament. It is an Old Testament concept so I believe it is still applicable to the church, TODAY.

I believe that revival comes when God's people get right with God concerning their sin. That means that repentance takes place in our hearts before a Holy God. Revival is a time of renewal and refreshing. A time when God reminds you and I of His rightful place in our lives and we actually listen and respond to Him in a positive, forward moving way. It is a time when God's children grow up a little, ie... spiritual maturity.

Are you up for some revival? Are you up for some repentance? Are you up for some growth? Are you ready to put God "in His place?" First place, that is, in your life. I am. See you at the meeting.

Serving Him,
Pastor Mike
