We talk much about revival in Christian circles. In fact, often we schedule an evangelist to come to our church and preach salvation messages for an entire week and call it a "revival." But what does revival mean? What are we trying to experience? What are we trying to revive?
The Webster definition of revival is: to restore life or strength, to give new strength or energy. It also means the growth of something or an increase in the activity of something after a long period of no growth or activity.
So, for the Christian, a revival happens when we have our strength in the Lord restored or have new strength or energy given to us by the Holy Spirit. Or, it means when we experience an increase in something that we have long let die. Sound familiar?
Are you in need of revival but don't know how to go about getting revived? Then keep listening.
