When true revival dawns, resentments are dissolved. When revival comes, self- promotion is seen to be ugly, and withers away. When revival comes, men and women are concerned to be holy, they are serious about integrity, they embrace genuine self- denial and learn to love. When revival comes, our worrying sense of unreality disappears, and heaven seems more real, and certainly more important, than this transient world order. When revival comes, worship is no longer an exercise but one of the chief characteristics of our lives. Buffoonery, gimmicks, and entertainment fade away; the day of Jesus Christ seems to draw near. Out of this fresh experience of the grace of God powerfully working in our lives, evangelism becomes not only a passion but immeasurably more fruitful.
