The following is an except from the April-June 2023 issue of the quarterly newsletter put out by Tree of Life Christian Bookstore.  We hope it touches your heart and draws each of us closer to Jesus.

      Many of us have heard about the Asbury Revival where young people are seeking the One who can save them and give their empty lives a hope and a future. This is something the enemy has tried to take away over the last few decades. But God, who is rich in mercy and love, has seen their dark despair and is pouring out His Spirit into their hearts, minds, and souls. “May they grow in grace and in the knowledge of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.”

May they grow in grace and the knowledge of our Lord and Savior

      How should we respond? My thought is not trying to duplicate or expand on their experience but to seek Jesus with all of our hearts, minds, and souls. We pray for revival but do we really want it to start with you or me? It’s scary and exciting at the same time.

I wonder if true revival comes when we forget about ourselves and by faith follow Him in every area of our lives. Trust and obey becomes our by-word and a personal revival may begin that spills out to those around us.

Shall we seek Him with all of our hearts, minds, and souls? I want to. Please pray for me, yourself, and those around you. “Come, Holy Spirit, dark is the hour….”
