What brings about spiritual awakening? Real change in the church doesn’t come from smoke machines and entertainment value. It starts with people who are willing to spend time in prayer as they seek Christ.
Whether they are praying together in churches or spending time alone with God, Christians need to pray for revival and spiritual awakening.
Through history, there have been several spiritual awakenings that fundamentally changed churches and nations. As our own culture experiences moral deterioration, Christians need to pray that Jesus will once again be the center of the church. That is the kind of spiritual awakening that can pour out to the nation.
As society follows a path of moral degradation, Jesus is the only true hope. It is only through Christ that churches can come alive and Christians can be emboldened to stand up for truth. Every believer needs to pray that this kind of spiritual awakening will happen in our generation.
In the book of Isaiah, God spoke of “a tenth”—a holy remnant of people who would remain faithful to God. Today, even through perilous times, there will be a remnant of God’s followers. Gary Wilkerson encourages Christians to remain steadfast as part of this group of faithful believers.
In the book of Isaiah, God sent a messenger to an unhearing culture. Even in a world that won't listen, Christians need to speak out. God can do great things in difficult times.
As American society slips away from its moral grounding, we may be tempted to give up hope. Christians can take heart because God’s word still stands.
God’s faithfulness is constant and unchanging. Even when we struggle to understand our circumstances, God’s faithfulness endures. God is true to his promises, so we have every reason to trust in him.
In ancient Hebrew, anything that was listed three times was meant to be taken seriously. Scripture describes God through many of his attributes, but holiness is the only one that is listed three times. God is pure, clean and totally separate from the things of the world. He is holy, holy, holy.
