I Need Revival When...

September 22, 2014

  • The presence of God is not real and I’m not experiencing Him.
  • The things of God do not thrill my heart.
  • Christ and His kingdom are not my first priority.
  • The presence of people who are walking with Christ bothers me.
  • The Bible seems meaningless to me and hard to understand. If I read it at all it is out of duty.
  • Prayer is perfunctory if even present at all.
  • I have lost concern for others…particularly for those without Christ.
  • It has been a long time since I’ve told anyone about Christ…or even had the desire to do so.
  • My first thought is to figure things out myself without depending upon God and His Word.
  • I am extremely concerned with myself. Very interested in making sure everything goes my way.
  • I am anxious to make sure everyone knows what I’ve done.
  • I am unwilling to be transparent about my sin and need.
  • My own family or co-workers, or fellow students don’t sense the presence of Christ in me.
  • I laugh at what breaks the heart of God; it has become my entertainment.
  • I am searching daily for things to do or have to make me happy or to enjoy my day.
  • My life is filled with substitutes for Christ.
  • I am worried and bothered about many things and have lost the quiet confidence in God’s sovereignty.
  • I feel overwhelmed by life and am not resting in God’s daily leadership.
  • I have lost the simplicity and purity of devotion to Jesus Christ.
  • I realize that it has been a long time since I have been overwhelmingly in love with Jesus.

THE PROBLEM

… with most of us modern Christians is that we are stoppable. A little discomfort, a turn from our desired daily routine, or a little resistance from those to whom we’re witnessing throws us off. We have not settled the issue that our greatest joy and highest purpose comes from our witness, and so we are unwilling to push through in sharing Christ with others every day, even in the mildest environments. Even when persecution is not present.

THE LIFE-CHANGING POWER OF UNITED PRAYER
THE LIFE-CHANGING POWER OF UNITED PRAYER

These all with one mind were continually devoting themselves to prayer (Acts 1:14)

Prayer is the foundation for all of life. Imagine the emotions and sense of fear and expectancy when Christ had been resurrected, appeared to His disciples, and then ascended. They were instructed to merely wait for the coming of the Holy Spirit who would endue them with power to be witnesses to Christ all across the world (Acts 1:8).

So, what did they do?
