Rhythm Of Revival

Revival Is A River

“One day Peter and John were going up to the temple at the time of prayer—at three in the afternoon. Now a man who was lame from birth was being carried to the temple gate called Beautiful, where he was put every day to beg from those going into the temple courts. When he saw Peter and John about to enter, he asked them for money. Peter looked straight at him, as did John. Then Peter said, “Look at us!” So the man gave them his attention, expecting to get something from them. Then Peter said, “Silver or gold I do not have, but what I do have I give you. In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, walk.” Taking him by the right hand, he helped him up, and instantly the man’s feet and ankles became strong. He jumped to his feet and began to walk. Then he went with them into the temple courts, walking and jumping, and praising God. When all the people saw him walking and praising God, they recognized him as the same man who used to sit begging at the temple gate called Beautiful, and they were filled with wonder and amazement at what had happened to him.”

Acts 3:1-10

1. Stop By The People Others Pass By. 

  • Peter and John were not going purposely to pray for the lame man; they were going to the temple to pray to God.
  • The lame man wasn’t in their plan but he was on God’s heart.
  • When you allow God’s heart to interrupt your plans, God will use your hands.
  • Your greatest ability is your availability.

How You Can Follow The Rhythm Of Revival

You don’t have to be in full-time ministry to minister full-time.”

Craig Groeshel
  • “Being a light to those in your office.”
  • ”Choosing to do the right thing, even when it’s hard”
  • “Getting lunch with a hurting co-worker.”
  • “Praying with a friend who needs the hope of Jesus.”
  • “Leading a lifegroup with your friends.”
  • “Whether you’re a doctor, a teacher, a student, a receptionist, a lawyer, a stay-at-home parent, working three jobs or working one job, you are called to ministry!”
Revival will not happen when everyone goes to church but when the church goes to everyone. Share on X

2. Hear The Cry Behind Their Ask.

  • What they want or say they want is not what they really need.
    • When you are lame, you need a miracle, not money. 
    • When you are lost, you need salvation.
