One definition of revival is that of being in a state where nothing matters but Jesus. One way to think about living in a revived state is “All Jesus All the Time.” He’s your all and everything. That’s how you can live now and always. You don’t have to wait for something to happen. You can give your life to Jesus today and let go of everything that is keeping you from living in His constant loving, full-of-joy presence.

The world today talks about living in the present. That’s not the key. It’s living in His Presence. That’s the goal, living in consistent fellowship with God. That looks like knowing Jesus is with you always. It’s keeping your eyes on Jesus. It’s setting Him always before you. It’s acknowledging Him in all your ways. It’s abiding in His love.

How can you do that? You can let go of every other love. He needs to be your one and only. The greatest commandments are to love God and love others. All of God’s laws are summed up in those commands to love. We are able to be forgiven because of Jesus’ love sacrifice to take the punishment for our sins. We continue in that blameless state before Him because we receive the love of God poured into our hearts by the Holy Spirit and let Christ live that love out through us.

We need to obey that greatest commandment and love God with all our heart, all our soul, all our mind, and all our strength. You can be revived by giving up all other loves so that your life is consumed with the only love that matters. Yes, there will still be work to do, but you do it with Jesus right there with you. You can fellowship with Jesus when you wash the dishes, turning it into a sweet time instead of a chore. 🙂

Ask the Lord to shine His light on your life and reveal where you’ve given yourself to other loves. Give them up. If you feel like you can’t or don’t want to, then ask God for help. Ask Him to change your heart so that you love Him alone. Walk in His light, as 1 John 1:7 says, and you will have love for others and He will be working to remove all that’s not from Him. It’s a continual state, not of perfection, but of blamelessness because you are ever giving yourself over to His purifying process, walking in the light of His love.

Therefore He says: “Awake, you who sleep, Arise from the dead, And Christ will give you light.” (Eph. 5:14 NKJV)

      Hope people going to Asbury know the meaning of the revival.

        I have a friend with a daughter who’s a senior at that school. She said when you were there nothing else mattered. You just wanted to worship Jesus. That’s how we can live all the time. The stuff we act like is important, isn’t that important. We can give all our time to Jesus and let Him direct our steps, order our days. We don’t “need” any of the stuff we think we need. We can stop thinking about ourselves all the time and turn ourselves outward. Love God. Love others.

        I also hope that this revival is taken out into the world. Revival is more than just a feeling, think about the upper room in Acts when the Holy Spirit was given. People received from the Lord and took that fire out to share God with the world.
        That’s loving people.
        We live in a dying world where hell is imminent for so many. Surely the Lord doesn’t want a revival of feelings only, but He isn’t willing that any should perish, but to know Him, that’s true revival.
        So I’m praying that all those who go have a spirit to share God and testify to others, so we can see salvations.
        God’s will be done, and of course we can experience this revival wherever we are to, true revival is everywhere the Spirit of the Lord is welcome.
