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.
