Duncan Campbell, a great agent of God, in a revival in Scotland 40 years ago, said, “We do not pray for revival in order that souls may be saved, but souls are saved in their thousands when we have revival. When the thirsty are satisfied, then the floods come on the dry ground.”
Do you need a Christian tune-up?
If so, here are five tune-up specials for you.
1. Adjust your light so others may see your good works.
2. Set your timing so as to be at the meeting house on time.
3. Adjust the brakes on your tongue.
4. Align your direction so that you may stay on the straight and narrow.
5. Anti-freeze your heart and be fervent in spirit, above all things, love the Lord thy God, with all thy heart and with all thy soul and with all thy mind.
Revival is needed when sinners are careless and stupid, and sinking into hell unconcerned. Then it is time for the CHURCH to stir itself. It is as much the duty of the church to awake as it is of the firemen to awake when a fire breaks out in the night in a great city. The CHURCH ought to put out the fires of hell which are laying hold of the wicked. Sleep! Should the firemen sleep and let the whole city burn down? What would be thought of such firemen? And yet their guilt would not compare with the guilt of CHRISTIANS who sleep while sinners around them are sinking stupid into the fires of hell. – Charles G. Finney
When God finds His people willing, when they have been forged into an instrument He can use, He will begin to work in power upon the consciences of sinners. – Anonymous
God is not only the source of revival – but He is also the end of revival. Revival comes from God and leads to God, that He may be ‘all in all’ and that man may learn that of himself he is nothing. – Anonymous
Revival times cause a rebuilding of the altar of prayer and a new commitment to seeking God. – Anonymous
