Revival has to be one of the most exciting words in the Christian vocab. It literally means to revive and to make alive again. The message of the Gospel is a message of heart revival. Revival is the coming back to the things of God and an awakening to the knowledge of His presence amongst us.
Revivals of past conjure images of large crowds, tent meetings, miracles, healings and salvations. You think of people like the Wesley brothers, Billy Graham or William and Catherine Booth. People who preached simple yet powerful messages and carried a great sense of the Holy Spirit and an expectation that He would move.
The impact of these revivals throughout history affected all parts of society — casinos and bottle-shops lost business, brothels closed down and judges had no cases to try. It is inspiring to think of the collective change that revived hearts can bring to the world!
You don’t need to look far to see and hear multiplied thousands of Christians talking of a fresh sense of revival in the air today. There is a tangible expectation that God is moving in a collective way and it is exciting! This excitement is a great reminder to ensure you are prepared for what God is doing and that your heart is ready.
God is the one who brings revival, not us, however it is through us that he brings it. He revives our hearts and in turn revives churches, schools, workplaces, communities and society. The question is, are you ready for revival? Because ready or not, it is here!
