Revival over Resolution


        Earlier in January, while I was up in Michigan I took some time

 to sit in prayer and listen to God. During this time I began to 

think about the year gone by and the year ahead.  Many people

 set out New Years Resolutions, and most are broken within a

 few days of the new year .In Christ we are not called to mere resolutions, 

but revolutions of our lives.  In essence our call to repent and be

 born again is to reverse and go another way, which is a revolution 

within our heart, soul, and life.

         I contemplated these thoughts and prayed about where my life, the

church within which God has called me to  minister, our community,

 and our world.  The more I thought and prayed the more I felt the call

 to revival.  Many people look at the term revival and think of some 

special services, where they bring their unsaved loved ones to hear the gospel.  

However, to be revived  really means to bring back to life or consciousness, 

to impart new health, to renew, or to restore validity or effectiveness. 

 

      Believers who seek revival are really getting back to a stronger relationship

 with God, being renewed in their spiritual connection to Christ through

 the Holy Spirit, and seeking God’s guidance for deeper growth and 

commitment of their heart our soul.

      May we be revived as we seek to keep on the journey with Jesus in our lives.
