Reflection questions for further engagement:
- Revival is the extraordinary work of God among His people, causing extraordinary results of spiritual revitalization in and through His Church. Where and when have you seen the evidence of revival in your life?… your family?… your campus?… your church?
- Read the Old Testament book of Nehemiah and especially focus on chapters 7 and 8. We see in Nehemiah that revival results in rejoicing. Why is joy not the absence of problems or suffering, but the presence of God?
- In what ways were the people spiritually prepared for worship (Neh. 7:73)? What does it mean to prepare yourself physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually for worship? How would corporate worship be different if we would all come prepared to meet with God? Why and how are corporate worship celebrations an overflow of our personal worship?
