Why we might not want revival and spiritual awakening . . .

send the fire

Why we might not want a spiritual awakening (a revival, a move of God)? Because in a time of revival:

1) Ordinary believers get excited about the living God and begin to obey the Spirit in church meetings, rather than quietly following the format, the pastor, or the “order of worship.”

2) God, Himself, often interrupts our programs, plans, agendas, and leadership.

3) Believers and unbelievers of all types are deeply troubled by and convicted of their sins and openly confess them, boldly calling their sins by their proper names.

About Steve Simms

I like to look and think outside the box. In college I encountered Jesus Christ and I have been passionate about trying to get to know Him better ever since. My wife and I co-lead a non-traditional expression of the body of Christ in Nashville based on open participation and Spirit-led sharing. We long to see the power and passion of the first Christ-followers come to life in our time. I have written a book about our experiences called, "Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible--Ekklesia" that is available in Kindle & paperback @ http://amzn.to/2nCr5dP
