Every winter we take a break from the cold and mix R&R with study somewhere warm. Each time I pick a subject or more to dig into for personal & pastoral growth.
I'm excited this winter break to study revival.
Currently, I'm enjoying, "A God -Sized Vision" by Collin Hansen & John Woodbridge. Check out these quotes from the preface.
“We persist in thinking that we can set the situation right. We start a new society, we write a book, we organize a campaign, and we are convinced that we are going to hold back the tide. But we cannot. When the enemy comes in like a flood, it is the Lord who will raise, and does raise the banner. The fact of revival proves, I say, so clearly again and again the impotence and smallness of man left to himself.” - Martyn Lloyd-Jones
“The inevitable and constant preliminary to revival has always been a thirst for God, a thirst, a living thirst for a knowledge of the living God, and a longing and a burning desire to see him acting, manifesting himself and his power, rising, and scattering his enemies.” - Martyn Lloyd-Jones
Praying for revival!
