It is time for spiritual revival

 

It is time for spiritual revival
(Romans 13:11-14; Isaiah 52:1; 60:1; Eph. 5:14)

1. Wake up!


Understanding (making sure we know) the present time.


The present time is a time for spiritual awareness.
The present time is a time for spiritual seriousness.

The word ‘time’ means a critical time - an important time.
Christ’s return is a critical time in human history.
The judgment seat of Christ is a critical time in the life of a believer.

We need to be watchful.
Awake from sleep.
Too many believers are not concerned with what is going on in this world.
‘Our salvation’ - the day of Christ’s return is close.

2. Consider time!

The night is nearly over and the day is coming.
Satan’s time is short.
Christ’s return is coming.

It is time to:


‘Put aside’ the deeds of darkness.
- Cast off as in a piece of clothing.
- Dark deeds are deeds we do under cover…

Put on the armour of light (Eph. 5:8:14; 1 Thes. 5:5).

3. What we need to remove?


We are to search for victory over sin.
Walk graciously.

‘In daylight’ – not doing what is not fit for daytime.
- Hedonism;
- Pollution;
- Hateful feelings.

4. What we must put on?


Walking in a way that is satisfying to God (Gal. 3:27; Eph. 4:24; Col. 3:10).


We must think ahead to order to avoid sin.


Scripture says that the believer is to put on (or clothe himself) with:

· The Holy Spirit (Luke 24,:9).

· The Lord Jesus Christ (Rom. 13:14).

· Immortality (1 Cor. 15:53-54).

· The new man (Eph. 4:24; Col. 3:10).

· The nature of God (Col. 3:12).

· The armour of light and of God (Rom. 13:14).

· Love (Col. 3:14).

'A job is at your choice; a ministry is at Christ's call. In a job you expect to receive; in a ministry you expect to give. In a job you give something to get something; in a ministry you return something that has already been given to you. A job depends on your abilities; a ministry depends on your availability to God. A job done well brings you praise; a ministry done well brings honour to Christ.'

This ministry is to bring honour to our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ!
