Fears of Revival

Here are some ‘fears’ people have of Revival:

1) Fear of exposure – people may find out my shortcomings and sin.

2) Fear of the cost – a total commitment to Christ.

3) Fear of the comfortable – may have to leave our traditions and comfortable structure.

4) Fear of the Unknown – we’ve been so far removed from real Revival.

2. Inter-personal Revival: ” Revive Us…”  Ps. 85:6

3. Corporate Revival: “Revive Thy Work…”  Hab. 3:2
