Study Notes

“Revival is that strange and sovereign work of God in which He visits His own people- restoring, reanimating, and releasing them into the fullness of His blessing.”

– Stephen Olford

Humility

“Pride is a roadblock to revival which blinds us to our true spiritual condition.”

Honesty

“We will not experience revival until we are willing to be honest with God and others about our true spiritual condition.”

Repentance

“Repentance is a change of mind that results in a change of behavior.”

Grace

“We cannot live humble, holy, obedient lives without God’s amazing, extravagant provision called grace.”

Holiness

“As we grow in holiness, we are increasingly set apart from sin and set apart to God for His purposes.”
