The Revival We Need (2)

Your Word is a lamp for my feet, a light on my path – Ps 119:105

The second part of the revival plan would be “a revival of light.”light for my path

Your job takes up about ten hours of your day, including travel. Sleeping, eating, bathing and dressing take another ten. Your family and your hobbies, etc., account for the remaining hours. Today a “committed church member” is in church two to three times a month. Do the math. Out of 168 hours in your week, about 90 minutes are given to spiritual growth – less than 1%! And what are the results? Spiritual ignorance and weakness. Divorce is as common inside the church as outside. Believers have as big a problem with pornography as unbelievers. The alcoholism and addiction rates are roughly the same.

A recent ABC News poll found that while certain churches are growing rapidly, many of the newcomers have an “eclectic theology.” They believe in the resurrection, but they also think reincarnation is okay. They believe God guides through prayer, and also through horoscopes. While devout Muslims commit themselves to memorizing the Koran, the average Christian doesn’t read their Bible once a week. As hard as your pastor may try, spoon feeding you from the pulpit and burping you at the door won’t make you spiritually mature. You’ve got to put God’s Word at the top of your daily “to do” list. “Then we will no longer be infants, tossed back and forth by the waves, and blown here and there by every wind of teaching and by the cunning and craftiness of people in their deceitful scheming. Instead, speaking the truth in love, we will grow to become in every respect the mature body of him who is the head, that is, Christ.” (Eph. 4:15-16)
