Revival Begins With You

Beginning early in January of this year (2014) I began to feel the hunger of revival for my leadership and my church.  I felt encouraged to call my church to really examine their commitment to prayer and study of God's Word.  I was challenged by 2 Thessalonians 5:19, as Paul challenge people "not to put out the Spirit's fire."

There is an old saying that revival must start with us.  As pastor's and leaders this cannot be overstressed.  We can preach revival, but until we start to sit down and let God reignite our passion in His Spirit we cannot help to spark others in their own seeking of revival.

Maybe it is time for you to consider taking a day away with God, and letting Him show you where you need to be reignited.  Maybe you need to spend some time at the altar of God's grace to be refilled with His vision for your family, your church, and your community.
