“There is a great need for revival and a stirring of spiritual life in the church — yes, our church. It is easy for us to try to remedy this with human programs to generate the appearance of life and growth. What is needed is the humbling of honest repentance for our coldness, the cleansing of the Word of God in our lives and the practice of fervent prayer to see the Lord move in our midst. Human programs can never replace real spirituality.”
Pastor John Ashbrook, Adult Bible Class lesson on Jeremiah 17, October 5, 2008.
