    REVIVAL: It REQUIRES OBEDIENCE

    by A W Tozer


    "But why do you call Me "Lord, Lord," and not do the things which

    I say?" - Luke 6:46.


    It is my conviction that much, very much, prayer for and talk about

    revival these days is wasted energy. Ignoring the confusion of

    figures, I might say that it is hunger that appears to have no

    object; it is dreamy wishing that is too weak to produce moral

    action. It is fanaticism on a high level for, according to John

    Wesley, "a fanatic is one who seeks desired ends while ignoring

    the constituted means to reach those ends."...


    The correction of this error is extremely difficult for it entails more

    than a mere adjustment of our doctrinal beliefs; it strikes at the

    whole Adam-life and requires self-abnegation, humility and cross

    carrying. In short it requires obedience. And that we will do

    anything to escape.


    It is almost unbelievable how far we will go to avoid obeying God.

    We call Jesus "Lord" and beg Him to rejuvenate our souls, but

    we are careful to do not the things He says. When faced with a

    sin, a confession or a moral alteration in our life, we find it much

    easier to pray half a night than to obey God.
