Is the Church Holy and Alive?
Good Morning. There are many misconceptions about revival today. Brian H. Edwards, in his book: Revival! A People Saturated with God defines as the church being awakened to holiness and life.
"Most people think of revival as a time of phenomenal growth in the numbers attending church. In fact, some would even define revival in just this way: a time when crowds flock to church in order to hear the gospel, a sudden and startling numerical increase in church membership and attendance as a result of many conversions. It should be clear by now that this is not the most significant thing about revival. Revival is not the conversion of thousands of unsaved, but the awakening of the church, making it holy and alive once again" (pg. 175).
Have a great day and keep praying for revival
