    —— WORDS TO PONDER .....

    Stephen Olford "Failure to hear God leads to failure to love God, which is another problem that hinders revival. To love God is essentially a life of obedience. Partial obedience is total disobedience. Just as it was true of the Law, so it is true of the Word of God. If we ‘keep the whole law, and yet stumble in one point, [we are] guilty of all’ (James 2:10). Is your obedience up-to-date? You say, ‘Is that really an expression of love?’ Jesus declared, ‘If you love Me, keep My commandments’ (John 14:15). The Greek there reads, ‘If you love Me you will keep My commandments. No passage stirs my heart with conviction like our Lord’s letter to the Ephesian church. Here is a church that was sound in doctrine, sound in duty, sound in discipline; yet the risen Lord had to lament, ‘Nevertheless I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast left thy first love" (Rev. 2:4). Unless there is repentance and a return to doing the first works, He has no choice but to remove the candlestick of witness. That spells death to a local church. Yes, the choir will gather, the trumpet will sound, the ritual and routine will go on. All the various branches of the church will continue to operate, but Jesus will not be there. Why? Because the church has left its first love. Jesus announced that the first commandment constituted the greatest commandment, namely, to love God. If that is true, then to break that commandment constitutes the greatest sin.”

    J. Edwin Orr “There was a Scottish Presbyterian minister in Edinburgh called John Erskine. He wrote a memorial. He called it, Pleading with the People of Scotland and Elsewhere to Unite in Prayer for a Revival of Religion. He sent a copy of his little book to Jonathan Edwards in New England. That great theologian was so moved, he wrote a response, which got longer than a letter, and finally he published it as a book. If my memory serves me right, the title of the book was as follows: A Humble Attempt to Promote Explicit Agreement and Visible Union of All God’s People in Extraordinary Prayer for the Revival of Religion and the Advancement of Christ’s Kingdom. Now this moment began in England through William Carey, Andrew Fuller, John Sutcliffe and others. They started what the British call the Union of Prayer. The year after John Wesley died, the Second Great Awakening began and swept Great Britain. In New England, there was a man of prayer named Isaac Backus, a Baptist pastor. In 1794, when conditions were at their worst, he sent out a plea for prayer…It was not long before revival came. It broke out first of all in Connecticut, then it spread to Massachusetts.”
