In a word, we are practicing atheists. OK, that was 4 words, but it is true. We don't believe God. We think we can do better—or that he doesn't care enough to work in our lives. Either way, we are just as bad as unbelievers because we are unbelievers!
There's a reason revival always has to start with the church—the church needs to be converted before it can convert the world...Lord, may this year see a true revival. May we see you in our lives in a real way on a daily, moment-by-moment basis!
