Do you know that God is ready to do amazing things in your life this week during our church’s SHARE OUR SAVIOR revival? The Bible tells us that God is, “…able to do exceeding abundantly beyond all that we ask or think, according to the power that works within us, to Him be the glory in the church and in Christ Jesus to all generations forever and ever. Amen” (Ephesians 3:20-21). When the Bible says that God is able, it is saying that God not only has the desire to do for us what we cannot do, but He also possesses the power to do it. The actual word used here means that God is SUPER-ABLE, to do what He intends to do.
Our week of Revival with Victor Benivetes promises to be a super week of spiritual blessing. We are praying that God will work through us to win people to faith in Christ. DO YOU KNOW SOMEONE WHO NEEDS TO RECEIVE JESUS AS THEIR SAVIOR? There will be cards placed in the bulletins this morning on which you can write the name of a person who needs Jesus along with their address and phone number. You should consider people you know who need to be saved or walk closer to the Lord. If you will share the name and address information, we will call, email and/or visit that person this week and tell them how much Jesus loves them. We will reach out to them to share God’s plan of salvation. Each card we receive from our congregation today will be personally followed-up on before the end of our revival. We are asking God to make this week’s SHARE OUR SAVIOR revival a SUPER-WEEK by leading many people to make Jesus their Lord and Savior.
Vance Havner said, “Revival is when the church falls in love with Jesus all over again.” Revival can happen when God’s people renew their love for the Lord. Maybe that is what you need to do today. It could be that your renewal would be the launching pad for God to make this week a SUPER-REVIVAL. Billy Sunday was asked by a lady once why he kept preaching revivals when everybody knows they don’t work. He responded, “Why do you keep taking baths?” Revival can be like taking a bath—a GOOD CLEANSING. Maybe that would make this week a SUPER-REVIVAL. When we repent of our sins and our self-centeredness, God will wash us and “…cleanse us from all unrighteousness” (1 John 1:9). What will it take for this SHARE OUR SAVIOR revival to be SUPER.
Bottom line, it will take YOU. God will not revive an empty seat. Wood, metal and upholstery do not have souls and cannot make spiritual decisions. Chairs can make you comfortable or uncomfortable, but they cannot be revived. You, someone you invite and bring with you will need to be sitting in a chair here at the church during the revival meeting to be revived. So, commit yourself now to be present and accounted for every night this week. This REVIVAL cannot be a SUPER REVIVAL WITHOUT YOU. Here is how it works, “…they were all together in one place. And suddenly there came from heaven a noise like a mighty rushing wind, and it filled the whole house where they were sitting” (Acts 2:1-1). When the people are together and God shows up, SUPER REVIVAL fills us the whole house. Pray and be Present this week. God wants to send a SUPER-REVIVAL to Grace.
