Spiritual Revival




SPIRITUAL REVIVAL
The antidote to backsliding and spiritual coldness is spiritual revival. Spiritual revival is accomplished through intense and earnest prayers and supplication to the Holy Spirit who is the author of all spiritual revivals. It is the revival of one's fervor and passion of love and devotion to the Lord characterized by a second outpouring of the Holy Spirit. The flickering love and commitment to God and His kingdom are relighted to a burning and smoldering fire that will sustain the child of God through his moments of trials and temptations. Prayer and daily reading of the word of God are regularly maintained as the renewed Christian is strengthened by the love and grace of God. Regular fellowships with other Christians are also revived with renewed fervor and enthusiasm. Witnessing for the Lord becomes so easy as narrating the events of the previous day. All Christians need spiritual revival from time to time to keep the flames of love and devotion to the Lord be ever burning in their hearts. Woe to the Christian who will not seek spiritual revival in times of spiritual coldness and backsliding. Theirs is the real danger of losing their heritage of eternal life with the Lord and going back to their former world of sinfulness and eventually, eternal death.

Hi Imelda,
Yes, we must always confess our sins so that we can have forgiveness from God. Thanks for your visit and comments. God bless you always.

Hi Arvin,
Wala naman sa dami nang kasalanan iyon. Nasa buong pusong pagpapakumbaba iyon at pagtanggap kay Hesu Kristo bilang ating Panginoon at tagapagligtas. Mababago ang pananaw natin sa buhay dahil bubuhayin nang Espiritu Santo ang matagal nang patay nating espiritu. Salamat sa dalaw at makatotohanang komento. Pagpalain ka nang Diyos sa tuwina.
