Acts 2: 46 And day by day, attending the temple together and breaking bread in their homes, they received their food with glad and generous hearts.
I remember many years ago me and my family would attend revivals, they were so amazing they lasted seven days, the church had an evangelist to come during the revival. Each night the church was packed with so many people, the worship was never rushed. Can you imagine being in a church service where they actually waited for the Holy Spirit instead of rushing out three worship songs while they get on to their agenda so that they can have you out the door within an hour and half? We should never rush the Holy Spirit or even quench Him, that’s another topic I will tackle later.
During revivals you really sensed the move of God, by the time the evangelist came forth to bring the word the atmosphere and people’s hearts are ready to receive from God. I can remember when altar call was given talk about people running to the altar, tears coming down their eyes, people dancing and praising God for break-throughs. Each night there were so people giving their hearts to the Lord.
I missed those days we don’t have or hear much about revivals these days. What really made revival; revival? I do believe that revival starts within us. And though I haven’t been to a revival in a long time I believe that I am being revived every day. In the day Paul when they received the Holy Spirit, they went around breaking bread in each other’s homes. What they did was what we call revival, and still to this day this is what we need to be doing. There was a huge benefit when they did this, the Lord added to them daily, which means many came to salvation.
Are you being revived? Are you breaking bread with people about Salvation? Revival beings from within each of us.
