THROUGH THE BIBLE IN THREE YEARS
A man was seated beside a local priest watching local boxing matches.
He noticed that one boxer knelt in his corner to pray before the match.
The man asked the priest, "Do you suppose God will help him win?"
The priest answered, "I think that depends upon whether he can box."
Wilt thou not revive us again: that thy people may rejoice in thee?
Light from the Word.
Permit me to compare the church to the boxer above.
In order for the church to make a genuine difference in this
sin-infested world, we must pray AND become involved!
Sadly, today, most churches can't even FIND 50 per cent of
Fewer than 40 percent of those enrolled in Sunday School
Sadly, today, many in the church have no concept of sin.
They call it failure, or shortcoming, or error -- anything but SIN.
Too many church members are "at EASE in Zion," and unconcerned
about the world, just content to have "Fire Insurance."
Only an awesome, people-changing, movement of the wind of God's
Holy Spirit can change the lax body of the church to be a causative
agent in the remodeling of a sin-infested world!
The salvation of the world DEPENDS upon the CONDITION of
Jesus said, "Ye are the salt of the earth,,,,,Ye are the light
of the world..." (Matt. 5:13-14)
The word "revive" means to make alive, refresh, renew.
PRAY for revival!
BECOME INVOLVED in speaking out for Christ!
