Remember, return, repent, revive, revolt and repeat your first works!

Re-envision em saved as you pray--yes, those around you. When is comes to biblical revival we each have a part to play if you will. 

Pray until it happens! 

Thanks Jesus for your ongoing work inside of me. Please Lord, pour out your Spirit again. Please send Your kind of sound revival. Please use us too while we still have time. You've done it before on this earth, and we know you can do it again. Convict, correct, convince.. rebuke, reawaken, remind, re-quicken re-intervene here ..even while we're out talking with our friends about You. And minister to those who aren't yet our friends as well!

New day, new joy, new 
anointing, new life and please do a new thing! 

Ask yourself.. Am I personally revived and ready to give a reason for the hope which I have? Are lives being changed because of my walk? Am I living as a committed, on-fire follower of Jesus Christ?

In unity let's intercede for friends.. for enemies and for real reviving. Yes, until we see God regenerate those buds and enemies.. thus making all of em our growing close friends. 

It’s time for us to rise up, refresh.. what’s been dying.. be fully renewed, reequipped, to reignite the fire and recommit to Christ with His essentials. It’s time to wholeheartedly reach up and out again.. and all the way return, re-up, renovate (Man, I’d throw in some more ‘Rs’ if I could think better this early). Yes get regenerated n restored.. that’s His work! Let’s reinvigorate, revitalize, R E V O L T against the wicked-craziness of this world kickin’ all fear, discouragement, indifference, timidity and dismay to the curb! 

Lord, help us reject and repeal what You can't bless--what's wrong and doesn't work. 

"Revive us, and we will call upon Your name." Psalm 80:18

"Will You not Yourself revive us again, that Your people may rejoice in You?" Psalm 85:6

Do you remember what Jesus said to the church of Ephesus. He gave them some important R's of revival and that's what you want as well so: remember, receive, repent, and repeat. God said this...

"I know your works, your labor, your patience, and that you cannot bear those who are evil. And you have tested those who say they are apostles and are not, and have found them liars; and you have persevered and have patience, and have labored for My name's sake and have not become weary. Nevertheless I have this against you, that you have left your first love. Remember therefore from where you have fallen; repent and do the first works, or else I will come to you quickly and remove your lampstand from its place—unless you repent." Revelation 2:2–5

There are some things we can do--we each have a part to play. Perhaps in the comments section below you can add a few Great Commission steps to these... 

Recall, return, recieve new grace and forgiveness. And then repeat your first works.. talking to God about people, and then to people about God. 

"You who have shown me many troubles and distresses Will revive me again, and will bring me up again from the depths of the earth." Psalm 71:20

"Remember therefore from where you have fallen; repent and do the first works..." Revelation 2:5

"Though I walk in the midst of trouble, You will revive me." Psalm 138:7

Do you need to come to Christ for the very first time, or come back to Jesus? Why wait another minute? "Remember therefore from where you have fallen," and then He says. "Repent." In other words, just turn away from your sins. And finally repeat what edifies, "Do the first works." Get back and serve God like you once did.
