Spiritual Drought

During times of a drought people pray for rain for two reasons.
1. For their lawns to look good
2. To feed their children

The revival rain that we are praying for as the church needs to be the kind of rain that makes a generation live or die , not make us look good. We need to stop looking at rain as something that will make the church look good amongst all the functions and start looking at rain as something necessary to germinate the seeds that have been planted. We need to move away from the mindset that revival is fun, revival would be neat and move into a mindset that if we do not experience revival we will lose a generation of people. If we do not experience an outpouring of the Holy Spirit we are in danger of losing an entire generation of people who will not come to our church because they like the building, the music or the preaching. It has to be the kind of rain that comes to germinate a dormant seed that grows into producing fruit.

  1. True words Dexter. Revival is not fun. Revival is denying the indulgences of self for the things of God. It is abandoning all else to receive the outpouring of God’s Spirit. Thanks for this post. For, it is time to awake the bride known as the church!
