Why personal Revival?
I’ve put up a few post written by others because I’m not really a very good writer. I think I do better speaking. But there are awesome ideas out there about drawing close to God and starting your own personal revolution. They are good solid voices that are more than rants on the subjects and issues of Prayer, fasting and bible study. Most are written to big city churches or areas of these United States that are ‘Big’.
Living in small town Utah I think small churches in small places can bring about big change in the church at large if we sell out to the head of the church. When I post what I desire is for each member of the body of Christ to come fully into all that Christ has called you to be. It’s not about scoring points with God. We know that from scripture that we only have a ‘blessed hope’ by means of what Christ himself has done for us.(Gal 3:2-3) So what we are talking about in this blog is learning to enjoy our relationship with Jesus by fellowship with him and the body of Christ. We are seeking out ways to do more than promote our denomination but instead promote the Christ. To share the Good News is in and of itself to release the power that brings salvation to those who are with out Christ in this world. The marvel is is that he will use any Christian at any station of life to do this. Thus making ourselves ready we pray to seek the heart of God and make petition for the community we live in. We Fast to to put our heart in check and bring our own fleshly desires under Gods control. We fellowship and work with other Christians to increase the kingdom of God. All these things we do not to just Hype up our name but to lift up the name of Christ.
In the up coming Post we will explore

Join with me in the up coming weeks as we seek to put Christ first in the whole of our lives.
