When is a revival needed? When carelessness and unconcern keep the people asleep.
Trying to run a church without revivals can be done when you can run a gasoline engine on buttermilk.
They tell me a revival is only temporary; so is a bath, but it does you good.
A revival does two things. First, it returns the Church from her backsliding and second, it causes the conversion of men and women; and it always includes the conviction of sin on the part of the Church. What a spell the devil seems to cast over the Church today!
When may a revival be expected? When the wickedness of the wicked grieves and distresses the Christian.
I believe there is no doctrine more dangerous to the Church today than to convey the impression that a revival is something peculiar in itself and cannot be judged by the same rules of causes and effect as other things.
