Rise Up, and Walk! (January 2017)

When Jesus healed the paralytic and said, “Rise up, and walk!” he was literally saying, “Awaken!” This call to come to consciousness, which is revival, is on all of God’s people. It is your responsibility and duty to put off deceptions, lay down the weapons of the devil, and fully consecrate yourself to Jesus Christ. Will you admit that the lack of revival is due to your own hardness of heart? Will you go on dozing in the land of Nod, or will you cry out to God?

Rise Up, and Walk!

Revival can come to any church at any time: not by a sovereign move of the Spirit of God, but by the church waking itself up to who God is, his righteousness, and their sin. The story of the palsied man, lowered through the roof and healed by Jesus, shows the three ways we can respond to this call for revival and to the gospel. We can scorn; we can be casually interested; or we can know that we are sick and be hungry for Jesus. Will you rise up immediately, and walk?
