J. I. Packer's Definition of Revival

Good morning. Let us remind ourselves of what revival is. Here is J. I. Packer's concise definition of revival. "God's quickening visitation of his people, touching their hearts and deepening his work of grace in their lives."

Do we need such a touch from God? Well, if the church is continually filled with the Holy Spirit and disciples are being produced, then the answer is "no." However, if we in the church are not daily growing in grace and are nit touching a lost world for Jesus, then the answer is "yes."

If the Holy Spirit to visit his people, then we must be a people of prayer.

Stay Close to Jesus
