Revival? Or Gospel?

October 21, 2008

Today, as I was studying. I had this thought…

I wonder if we somehow limit God just by calling an outpouring of the Holy Spirit a “revival”. I mean, when the disciples experienced an outpouring of the Spirit in Acts – they just called it the gospel… which essentially is what it is. With the mindset of a revival we think that it’s not the “norm” and that the chances are it’s only going to be temporary. I wonder what God could do if we didn’t box the outpouring of the Holy Spirit – which is just another part of the gospel – in to a revival.

I don’t know for sure… but I just can’t help but think it’s just another mindset trap. Anyways… If anyone reads this, let me know what you think…
