Revival can come to others if it first comes to believers seeking Kingdom
As a pastor and as a Christian, I often hear from other Christians lamenting that if they could only get the world to conform to their image everything would be better in our society, and thus the world. I would concede that if the whole world would conform to the image of God as taught in Romans 12:1-2 things would be ... Heavenly. Alas, that is not for this world but for the Kingdom to come.

Do we realize how much freedom we have lost? We still live in the greatest country on earth, but if we do not turn back to God, that will not remain true.

We may not want to get real with others, but we can with God
“Get real!” was a phrase that was once popular. Few, if any, of us present our real self to others. We tend to show the side of ourselves that seems most acceptable and safe. At times this is appropriate and wise. But hiding our real self can make it difficult for people to accept us and love us as we are.
