Preparing for Revival – Part 5
Preparing for Revival – Part 5: Number 21: HEBREWS 10:25 Do you stay away from preaching services or are irregular at prayer services? Do you whisper or think about things while God’s Word is being read or preached? Do you neglect or slight private prayer and Bible study? Do you find prayer and Bible study uninteresting? Have you neglected thanksgiving at meals or family devotions?
Number 22: JAMES 4:6 Do you feel that you are a good enough Christian? Are you stubborn? Do you insist on having your own way? Do you insist on your rights?
Number 23: JAMES 4:11 Have you dishonored God or hindered His work by criticizing His servants? Have you failed to pray regularly for your Pastor, teachers, or other spiritual leaders? Do you find it hard to be corrected? Is there rebellion toward one who wants to restore you? Are you concerned about what other people will think than what will be pleasing to God?
If you have been honest and true in the matter of admitting your sins, then you are ready for God’s cleansing. Sins that are admitted to God are sins that are confessed and sins that are confessed are sins that are forgiven. I John 1:9
REMEMBER THREE THINGS:
- If the sin is against God, confess it to God and make things right with Him.
- If the sin is against another person, confess it to God and make things right with the other person
- If the sin is against a group, confess it to God and make things right with the group.
If there is full confession, there will be full cleansing. The joy of the Lord will follow. Then there can be testimony and prayer in the power of the Holy Spirit. Psalm 19:12; Psalms 51:2-4:10
