Relief isn’t Revitalization

In our chaotic world today of trying to find some sort of stability, we often settle for relief rather than remedy. I have found in people as well as churches many just want some sort of relief from the crisis or current dilemma.

Some things to note about relief:

Relief is not revival

Relief is not revitalization

Relief is not reversal

Relief  Prevents Repentance

If there isn’t repentance, and only a relief [more comfortable condition] then there isn’t a basis for God to work. Some situations people and churches are content to have a “manageable crisis”  mentality instead of real reform or restoration.

People and Churches need both revival and revitalization – call it revivalization.

Revive the People, Revitalize the Church.
