Let's ask for an authentic spiritual awakening -- for biblical revival where the church shares the Gospel again. Not ask for some lame religious imitation of revival. Who needs that?

If you want to win some, be winsome. Yes, upbeat, non-religious, compassionate and kind. It’s so easy to come off as pushy or really harsh like religious leaders so often have been. Remember how they were the ones that gave Jesus the hardest time when he was here? Why in vain burn a bridge instead of building a bridge?
God, the Prince of peace, came down to associate with people like me!  A sinner needing righteousness.  Didn't care what people thought of Him coming her to love sinners.  Paid the full price too.  He never tried to start fights with anyone. Made peace, no trouble-maker.
“My son, do not forget my teaching,    but let your heart keep my commandments,or length of days and years of life    and peace they will add to you.” Proverbs 3:1-2

This world’s system has given out bad advice a long time. You need real solutions not the opposite of em. You and I need the Lord most.

I want an authentic spiritual awakening and biblical revival, not some lame religious imitation. It’s certainly a good day for these and God is easy to talk to – let’s ask for them! Start here. And I’m going to thank and praise You in advance.
Listen, you can earnestly wrestle in prayer for others. You can be meek, pure and strong at the same time. Remember Moses? You can be loving and angry at sin at the same time. Doesn’t mean you have to be angry at the people who are hurting each other and themselves. You can be a good witness-rep without feeling like you have to reform their behavior. Who cares if they call you ‘intolerant’ or 'judgemental’ even though you do care and aren’t. You and I can’t change them, but we can pray, listen, befriend, share the gospel and watch God powerfully change them.
God has given us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. Whoever has the Son has life; whoever does not have the Son of God does not have life. 1 John 5:11

The forgiveness cost God a lot, but it cost me nothing, no good works or religious attendance or anything I did or do could pay for it – zero good deeds or money. 

And Jesus has done no greater miracle ever than making each repentant sinner like me ..spiritually born again.. in a moment of time. Yes, God longs to forgive every sinner. Turn and trust Him. Takes humble honesty. What does it feel like? It’s diff for everyone. Some feel nothing

Because you belong to Him [Christ Jesus], the power of the life-giving Spirit has freed you from the power of sin that leads to death. Romans 8:2
