Our Great Need for God

“If the Church of Christ is ever going to be a force for God, then it must be melted down in the flames of an old-fashioned, God-sent, heaven-born, heart-searching revival. And I mean revival, that gentle breathing of the Spirit of God upon a church and congregation, which awakens within each Christian a new love for God and His work. It is a genuine melting and gracious moving of the Spirit of God upon His people. Or to put it in the words of a well-know Christian writer: ‘Revival is the inrush of the Spirit of God into a body that threatens to become a corpse’ “–Reg Dunlap.

“”I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you; I will remove from you your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh”–Ezekiel 36:26.

“There is not a church, or mission, or chapel on earth where you cannot have a revival, provided there is a nucleus of faithful people who will hold on to God until it comes”–R.A. Torrey.

“I believe strongly in support groups, accountability groups, and in ministering to one another, but hear me carefully; there will always come a time when you, as a spiritual leader, must choose between not only right and wrong, or good and better, but between better and best. One of the greatest needs in families today is to have godly fathers and mothers who can teach their children how to stand alone”–Ron Herrod.

“And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my Spirit on all flesh; your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, and your young men shall see visions”–Joel 2:28.

Verse of the Day

The commandments, “You shall not commit adultery,” “You shall not murder,” “You shall not steal,” “You shall not covet,” and whatever other command there may be, are summed up in this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.” Love does no harm to a neighbor. Therefore love is the fulfillment of the law. — Romans 13:9-10 (NIV)
