Revival doesn’t begin in a church … it begins in a heart.
It begins when one individual is convicted, to the core, about their sin.
It begins when one individual takes their sin “load” to Jesus and then takes others with him.
The goal is not to broadcast sin …
but to broadcast the shed blood of Christ as the remedy for sin.
Sometimes there is a domino effect and where one person leaves off confessing, another person jumps in and begins.
This is called corporate revival and I’ve been told it’s very powerful.
Revival is a supernatural “grace” that manifests itself through the repentant.
Revival is the power of Christ at work in sinful lives.
Revival is an expression of confidence in the finished and final work of Jesus Christ.
None else matters.
Nothing else matters.
Christ alone matters.
This season of my life is about experiencing personal revival.
It has been the most critical period of life I have ever passed through in terms of understanding Christ, “His” church, and the power of redemption.
And I learn that …
Revival is merely a word until it begins to happen in one’s own heart,
And then everything changes and from that point on:
It’s anyone’s guess what God will do.
To fear God and to give Him glory
Is to tell “His” story …
And that’s what redemption is all about.
Revival begins with one and then it passes the story on.
I’m a sinner saved by grace.
Who are you?
If you're a sinner saved by grace ...
Now there's two.

“If we confess our sins He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we say that we have not sinned, we make Him to be a liar, and His word is not in us.”
1 John 1:9-10
