Day One: What is Revival?

Won't you revive us again, so your people can rejoice in you? Show us your unfailing love, O LORD, and grant us your salvation. Psalms 85:6-7

For some, the term "revival" has come to mean a series of fiery sermons and a few new converts. For others, it may mean a Friday night tent meeting complete with special music, inspiring testimonies and a plate of spaghetti.

But these things, while they certainly may start a revival, are not revival itself. Revival has nothing to do with our surroundings and everything to do with our hearts.

Revival technically means "life again" - your spiritual life has become stagnant and now it has been stirred once more.

When in the midst of true revival, the church will be convicted of sin, Christians will have their faith renewed, backslidden believers will be brought to repentance, and the power of sin will be broken.

Revival itself is reserved for Christians - a person must first be alive in Christ in order to be brought back to life. But the effects of revival must be felt outside the church or it cannot be called revival. Once the church is awakened, it will receive a newfound boldness and enthusiasm for evangelism. The salvation of sinners will follow in due time.

It's true that the world is in desperate need of revival. But in order for revival to come, the church must wake up. And the wake-up call begins with you. Are you hungry for revival? Are you ready to experience "life again"?

Action Point: Prepare yourself for the days of faith ahead. Where do you see stagnancy in your soul? Ask God in prayer to help you desire life anew.

Prayer: Yes, Lord, I want to experience a personal revival. Revive me again, that I may rejoice in You. Show me Your unfailing love, and grant me your salvation. In Jesus' name I pray, Amen.
