Will You not revive us again, that Your people may rejoice in You? Show us Your mercy, LORD, And grant us Your salvation.
—Psalm 85:6–7

The world needs evangelism, but the church needs revival. God wants to revive the church, to restore it to its original condition. In the book of Acts, we see what that original condition was. The early church was the church that changed the world, the church that turned the world upside down.

Is the church of today having as much of an impact as the church of the first century did? I think the answer is clearly no. In Revelation 3:8, God told the last days church of Philadelphia, “For you have a little strength, have kept My word, and have not denied My name.” I believe there could be a comeback of sorts in the church today—a revival.

If you are Christian, you are a part of the church. What if the whole church were just like you? What if everyone in the church prayed as often as you prayed? Would we be a praying church? What if everyone in the church evangelized as often as you evangelize? Would we be an evangelizing church? What if everyone in the church gave as faithfully from their finances as you give? Would we have a church that is resourced? What if everyone in the church were just like you?

The church is made up of us. Every one of us makes a difference. We contribute either to the strength of the church or to the weakness of it. It is easy to point an accusing finger and say, “The church needs to do this. . . .” But here is the question: What about you?

It has been said, “Revival is God’s finger pointed at me.” Revival is personal. You need revival. I need revival. We need revival. Let’s pray to that end because it is our nation’s only hope.
