Read for This Week’s StudyMatt. 26:69-74Acts 5:28-326:3-109:1-9Phil. 2:5-8.

gless05Memory Text: “For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ” (2 Corinthians 10:4-5, NKJV).

An illustration of the impact of revival on daily life can be seen in the Welsh Revival of 1904. Evan Roberts and some of his friends began earnestly praying for the outpouring of the Holy Spirit. They interceded, studied Scripture, and shared their faith.

The Spirit was poured out in response. Lives were changed. In six months there were one hundred thousand conversions in the small country of Wales. The results of this revival were seen throughout the country. Throughout the day people flocked to churches by the thousands for prayer. The rough cursing coal miners were transformed into kind, courteous gentlemen. Even the pit ponies in the coal mines had to learn new commands because the miners were not cursing at them anymore! Transformed, obedient lives sprang from converted hearts. This is irrefutable evidence of a true revival.

Sabbath: Obedience: The Fruit of Revival — 2 Comments

  1. Monday's Lesson: RECEIVING THE PROMISE. In Acts 2:13, some of the people mocked the Disciples and claimed that they were full of new wine. In verse 37; the very same people are "cut to the heart and asked Peter and the rest of the Apostles, "Men and brethren, what shall we do?"

    What happened between verses 13 and 37? It was Peter's preaching of the Gospel that moved the men to realize their great need for a savior. And who was Peter? He was a fisherman turned fisher of men because he had been with Jesus! (Acts 4:13)

  2. God;s word is sharper than any two edged sword. Indeed, when we make ourslves fertile ground for of the Holy Spirit, He will use us to the amazement of people. God;s word has power to bring into being that which it says. When, our lives are revived and reformed by God's word and Spirit, it will natural for us to Obey whatever He tells us to do. We need to empty our soul temples with any defilment and allow the Lord to fill up the vaccum so that we become useful vessels for Him. Our stone herats that struggle to do the will of our Lord will be natrually obedient at His command.
