Why we all need revival

Our yearly theme is revival. In the book of Isaiah, chapter 57 and verse 15, we have God’s pathway to revival. 

“For thus saith the high and lofty One that inhabiteth eternity, whose name is Holy; I dwell in the high and holy place, with him also that is of a contrite and humble spirit, to revive the spirit of the humble, and to revive the heart of the contrite ones.”

Isaiah 57:15

The nation of Israel was in serious need of revival. 

I believe we are all in serious need of revival. 

Two years of pandemic mania and fearmongering has unfortunately revealed a lack of spiritual maturity in many and for others a serious decline in spirituality. 

Some have excelled spiritually, if we are honest with ourselves, we would admit to a decline in our spirituality.

This is why we need revival – a spiritual revival. 

The word “revive” means to renew, to make alive again, to resuscitate. 

First and foremost, you must have the life of the Spirit if you are to be revived spiritually. 

You need to be born-again by the Holy Ghost by receiving the Lord Jesus Christ as your personal saviour. 

If you want to be revived in 2022, you will need to make sure that you are a born-again Christian.

Time is short. We are definitely living in the last days. 

Our Lord Jesus is coming again, and only what is done for Jesus Christ will have eternal value. 

As the people of God, we need revival. Will you allow God to revive you in 2022?

Why not join us at Metropolitan Baptist Church as we learn about revival, look into Word of God accounts of revival, and see what it was that led to these specific revivals! 

I would like to encourage you to make our Church theme the desire and prayer of your heart in 2022.
