We often hear or read about revivals in history that came and went. These accounts are usually given with an urge for us to pray for revival, and we should. But I want to give you another path to revival that has been in the Bible for hundreds of years. We are actually watching this kind of revival take place in many places around the world, and it is gathering momentum, yet it is unseen by most of the Church.
What am I referring to? As this ministry begins our training by introducing God’s Plan for His Disciples, we start Lesson 1 with the “Disciples’ Authority and Sufficiency – The Authority and Sufficiency of the Word.” It is common for students to say, “I am seeing things I never saw before” or “this is making me want to study the Bible more.”
One of the first verses they look at in Lesson 1 is Psalm 19:7-14. In verse 7, David says, “The law of the Lord is perfect, reviving the soul.” True revival begins when the Word of God is recognized to have authority over my mind, heart and life. Instead of just being words on a printed page, the Word imparts life through the Holy Spirit and what was dead (unfruitful to God) comes to life “through the living and abiding Word of God” (1 Peter 1:23).
As David proved in his life, so we can prove that revival will happen in us when we RETURN to the Scriptures and allow them to impart life. Revival will come and stay as long as God’s Word remains in us (John 15:7). “So, Jesus said to the Jews who had believed him, “If you abide in my word, you are truly my disciples” (John 8:31). Are you REALLY His disciple?
