I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me. (Galatians 2:20 KJV).
Revival starts within the true believer who realizes, becomes aware or is mindful of Christ Jesus, Who loves them, lives in them and died for them. In Galatians 2:20 we see the Gospel. First God loves us. John 3:16 tells us that God so loved the world that He gave his only begotten Son. Here are two of the points in Galatians 2:20; He loves us and He died for us.
Through the belief of the gospel, the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ we are saved. (Romans 10:9,10,13 and 1 Corinthians 15:3,4). But that is not the end of it. Christ promised to send us another comforter Who would dwell in us, the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is God’s Spirit, and the Spirit of Christ, dwelling in you (John 16:7, 14:20). This is the third point of “in me” Christ is in you.
So don’t look to heaven and say “God where are You?” Look within, and ask God like Paul did, “Lord, what will you have me do?”
Think about it, you may be the only person someone will see today who knows Christ and the gospel message. Find an opportunity to bridge the gap and to tell them about Jesus our Saviour.
The baby boomer generation can leave a legacy of another great awakening and revival this country so needs. So, “Go ye therefore, and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them into the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit: teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I commanded you: and lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world” (Matthew 28:19-20 ASV).
Start today by asking God to set your heart ablaze for His good purpose and to have a heart and compassion for those who are lost and heading into an eternal destiny without God. The second death and an eternal in Ghenna, (Revelations 20:14, 15).
