Revival

There is a need to constantly assess and evaluate our positions. Whether it is our positions at home, on the job, in school, at church, in the community, or in our own self-evalutions. Revival means a renewed attention to or interest in something. It can also mean a new presentation or publication of something old. The Apostle Paul serves as a conduit to the the believers encouraging them to get back in their positions in Christ. In Ephesians 1:3-5, Paul writes, "3 Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ. 4 For he chose us in him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight. In love 5 he predestined us for adoption to sonship through Jesus Christ, in accordance with his pleasure and will—"

Paul was encouraging the believers to renew their attention to the spiritual blessings that God has already given. We were chosen before the world was created. God did not choose us so that we could work for the justification of his choosing. He chose us in love and by his grace. There is nothing we can do or say to earn it. He loved us just that much!

So, it is time to renew our the families to walk in love and build up one another in love. It is time to renew our committments and perform so that God can be glorified. In Ephesians 2:8-9, Paul writes,  "For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— 9 not by works, so that no one can boast." Therefore, I declare that all of my family will be saved and I speak this not by something I have done or anyone else will do, but by God's grace and my faith in Him, they are saved! Declare a revival in your family and expect God's favor to prevail.

I declare that every position outside of my home, whether it is at work, church, in the community or abroad will be performed to glorify God. The reader of these words will perform to glorify God. When that is done, no man can boast about attributing to your results and you can not boast either, because it it by God's grace that we are able to perform. There are stones still unturned that are waiting to be picked up and used it to uplift someone or some cause.

Let us get the gleam back into our eyses and the excitement back about doing something that will last and impact the needs of our world. Giving the intangible and spiritual gifts of peace, knowledge, and understanding can be transformed into something tangible. The intangible has be be formed and then we will see our families wallking in harmony, our resources increase, and our agendas aligning with God's agenda.

Grace and Peace,
