The Three “R’s” of Revival

The subject of revival has become one of controversy and confusion. Revival is when God’s people, who have drifted from total obedience to God, repent of their sins and return to that place of obedience.
Often people confuse the results of revival with revival itself. Large crowds gathering to hear the preaching of the Word, unsaved people turning to Christ in greater numbers, and appropriate emotional responses are not revival. They are the result of Christians responding to the convicting work of the Holy Spirit with repentance and renewed obedience.
Perhaps we have not seen much revival because we have been looking for the wrong thing. If you want to see revival, you must remember what full obedience looks like, then examine your life for areas where you have fallen away from that. Then you should repent of those sins and renew your obedience to God. That is revival.
