Revival

“Wilt Thou not revive us again; that thy people may rejoice in thee? Show us thy mercy, O LORD, and grant us thy salvation” (Psalm 85:6-7, KJV).

We are going to be working through a summer sermon series with Pastor Michael Williams called The Armor of God. Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground,

To be revived AGAIN suggests that revival has happened before. For some, revival is a season of personal spiritual repentance and renewal accompanied by a heartfelt manifestation of emotionalism. For faith communities, it is an intentional movement toward “at-one-ment” with our Triune God and with one another. For the months of August/early September, we will be studying the seven churches in the book of Revelation:

  1. Ephesus had left its first love (Revelation 2:4).
  2. Smyrna – Some tolerated apostate believers among them who were really instruments of Satan (Revelation 2:9).
  3. Pergamos – Some held to the doctrine of Balaam, who hired himself out to do religious work for personal gain and held the false doctrine of the Nicolaitans (Revelation 2:14- 15).
  4. Thyatira – Some had listened to and tolerated false preaching, committing spiritual and even physical adultery (Revelation 2:20-21).
  5. Sardis – Devoid of spiritual life and power. “Be watchful, and strengthen the things that remain” (Revelation 3:1).
  1. Philadelphia – Commended for their love, but warned to beware and hold fast that no man take their crown (Revelation 3:11). This strongly implies there would be those who would attempt to overthrow their faith by whatever means.
  2. Laodicea – Called to repent for their lukewarm, neutral, compromising, or accommodating attitudes. They thought they “had need of nothing” (Revelation 3:17).

Keep in mind that a revival begins with each of us moving closer to God; then within the home, being reconciled with family members; within church, communities rehearsing the Great Commission; outside of the church, making disciples for the transformation of the world.

The Barrington United Methodist Church continues to worship virtually AND as of Easter Sunday (April 4, 2021) we will begin to also reopen Live. (Both Virtual and Live will be available.)

We are continuing to offer a hybrid service with both in-person and Zoom options.  If you are worshipping in person, you no longer need to wear a mask if you have been vaccinated.  We are still following guidelines for social distancing.  If you are logging on to the service from home, note that the Zoom link from week to week never changes.
