Vital signs - Thursday, July 8th, 2021


It’s easy to think about revival in terms of God working in others, but the reality is that true revival starts in our own heart. When we love God with all our heart and love others as we love ourselves, it is a powerful witness to the world. It shows the world that God is worth more than everything the world has to offer.


Pastor Adrian Rogers said:

"We err when we lament, “O, if only Hollywood...if the government would...if pornographers would go out of business...if abortionists would stop....”


But God doesn’t look to them. He’s looking at us, His people! He’s looking at you. We’re to humble ourselves, pray and repent. Are we one of His people? Then we must stop putting the blame on anyone else. If America falls, it will be our fault—the fault of God’s people."

If we want God to move in others, we must first ask Him to move in us.

We must ask Him to fill us with fresh love and affection for Him. We must plead with Him to help us love our family, friends, neighbors, and coworkers.


James 4:8-10 says, “Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners; and purify your hearts, you double-minded. Lament and mourn and weep! Let your laughter be turned to mourning and your joy to gloom. Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and He will lift you up.”


This is such good news. When we draw near to God, He will draw near to us. When we humble ourselves, He’ll lift us up.

 

 Pray that the Lord would increase your love for Him.


• What things are keeping you from loving God more fully?

• Are there any idols in your life that you need to turn from?

 

Application- Before you ask God to work in others may we ask God to work in us.
