My 2 Hot Takes on the Asbury ‘Revival’

What if we stopped trying to interrupt it? Or report on it? Or invade it? Or, as I said earlier, name it?

What if we allowed it to just be a move of God in a moment? It may become a crusade of sorts like the Jesus movement of the late 1960s and early 1970s. Or it could be a two-week moment in the lives of these students.

Either is fine. And we shouldn’t attempt to make it more than God is making it now.

As Jesus said in Mark 14:6,

“Leave her alone,” said Jesus. “Why are you bothering her? She has done a beautiful thing to me.

For Me Personally…

As I grow older, I pray that I will become less cynical and more curious. I want to be separate from the older and established institutions that tend to fight against what’s new and not yet understood. I don’t want to ignore or criticize what I don’t understand.

That feels a lot like what the Pharisees did. 

I want to be a supporter, not a detractor.

What about you?
