Welcome to another installment of Tell The World Tuesday! I have been very thoughtful today and going back to my roots when I became a Christian. There are so many great memories from that time in my life. So many great people influenced me during those years. And I belonged to several awesome churches throughout that time, as well.
In my teenage years I attended a pentacostal church in the metro Atlanta area. And once a year, or so, they would hold a good, old fashioned, Southern revival! These revivals were huge! They would draw many people in from the community that had never been to our church before. And it gave us all the opportunity to share the gospel with them.
I’ll never forget my very first revival. I thought is was the greatest thing ever. I had never seen SO MANY people on fire for the Lord in the same place at the same time. The music was amazing! The fellowship was amazing! The Spirit of the Lord would move mightily in that place, as many hours of prayer had been offered up to God beforehand by the church body. I can remember vividly that many people made decisions to become Christians during those events. It’s a memory that is forever etched in my mind.
So, revivals were an effective way my old church would reach out to their community. It was an amazing time of worship and ministry. Does your church do anything like this? Have you ever attended a revival?
For His Glory,
