Recipe for Revival

I start off, not by giving an opinion, but asking questions:

What are your associations with the word "revival"? Does it conjure up the image of a large tent somewhere in an open field or vacant lot? Do you picture a too-big-to-ignore banner announcing "revival meetings" and an old-time preacher shouting his message at the crowd?

I go on to ask even more questions, about what brought on the revival we read about in Acts and if we can emulate the pursuit for the Spirit:

... we can guess at the process His followers went through before they reached 'one accord' ... competition for position ... betrayal ... and doubt.

I answer some of these questions in my article, which you can read in full here. Do come back and leave a comment because I hope it stirs something in your heart!
