What is Revival?
Today I talked about "revival." I'm not talking about a revival meeting but real revival. I taught from II Chronicles 7:11-16 and Joel 2:12-13. What I found intersting is that God wants to show himself in His Temple. But the Temple is not a building, it is our bodies. In I Corinthians 3:16-17 Paul stated that our bodies are God's Temple. What I thought was cool is that if we want revival to start it has to start in us. It was reported that Gypsy Smith, the noted evangelist, would lock himself in a private room, mark a circle around himself with a piece of chalk, and pray
"Lord, send a revival ....and let it begin inside this circle."I remember reading about the Asbury Revival of the 1970's. I was at Southwestern in 1995 when a revival broke out during one of the chapel services. I want to see revival in my church, but I realize it begins in me!
