REVIVE US AGAIN
TEXT: PSALM 85:1-10
MEMORY VERSE: “Wilt thou not revive us again: that thy people may rejoice in thee?”(PSALM 85:6).
“Revival is the visitation of God which brings to life Christians who have been sleeping and restore a deep sense of God’s near presence and holiness,” submitted J. I. Packer.
Reminiscing on God’s past manifestations to His people and comparing these to the present regrettable conditions, we cannot but agree with the Psalmist’s lamentable cry to God: “Wilt thou not revive us again?”
Looking at the present deplorable spiritual conditions in contrast to the fervency that characterized the lives of many youths when they first got converted, you would know that they need a revival.
For revival to occur, there must be a realization of the need of revival, recognition of God as the Source of revival, removal of the obstacles to revival and resort to prayer for revival. Revival has its vital signs when it is in place.
According to Steve Camp, “Prayer is the burden of revival; repentance is the breakthrough of revival; evangelism is the blessing of revival; holiness is the bounty of revival”. Do you not think you need a revival?
QUOTE: You need a revival.
CHALLENGE: There is a price to pay for revival.
PRAYER: Lord, revive me again.
