what is revival? Is it a set of religious meetings, or is it a movement, maybe a feeling.....who knows?

Many times we can get bogged down with the ins and outs, daily pressures, emergencies, and general chaos that happens in life. These things can easily stress us and damage our relationships, or even add to our the stress of our daily grind. When it comes to our relationship with God, this can be just one more pressure added to our plate.....

Our purpose in life is to Glorify God with our entire being. We are to bloom where we are planted.

How can we when we live in a time such as this. There are wars, famine, financial crisis, and many uncertainties the we MUST deal with. How can revival be had, how can we bloom for God?

The answer is found in the Word of God. II Timothy 3.16-17

2Ti 3:16 All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness,
2Ti 3:17 that the man of God may be competent, equipped for every good work

The answer is the Word of God.

The word of God is provided so that we may know how to live and function in this world. If we want to be taught, corrected, trained, competent, joyful, and equipped in this life we must immerse ourselves in the WORD of GOD.

REVIVAL will be experienced when the Christian takes the time to be in the WORD of GOD.

Then and only then will revival be experienced once again.

Norman P. Grubb has this to say about revival in his introduction to Roy Hession's "The Way of the Cross". Grubb is talking about his experience with a couple of missionaries and he says: "From them I learned and saw that revival is first personal and immediate. It is the constant experience of any simplest Christian who 'walks in the light,' but I saw that walking in the light means an altogether new sensitiveness to sin, a calling things by their proper name of sin, such as pride, hardness, doubt, fear, self-pity, which are often passed over as merely human reaction. It means a readiness to "break" and confess at the feet of Him who was broken for us, for the Blood does not cleanse excuses, but always cleanses sin, confessed as sin, then revival is just the daily experience of a soul full of Jesus and running over."
