Three Characteristics of Revival: Number Two
Richard Robert Owens, in his classic work: "Revival" shares three characteristics of revival. Here is number two...
"Second, revival is the work of God. No amount of human effort can produce true revival. There is much that people can do, and all that we can do we should do---with all our might... Everything God told us to do we ought to do, but having done it all, we must still wait upon Him to do what He alone can do. Revival comes from God. The sovereign Lord of the universe must revive us again or we will never know what true revival is. If God does not act, our churches will forever remain unrevived" (pg. 22).
That last statement reminds us why we must continue to fervently pray for revival.
Come Holy Spirit.
