THIRST Conference Reflections…

We just concluded a 4-day THIRST Conference led by a team from Life Action Ministries (lifeaction.org). It was an AMAZING time of worship, teaching, conviction, brokenness, renewal, & restoration in the Church!

Ryan Loveing, our revivalist for the week, provided strong Biblical teaching in each service, & here are some of the points I gleaned:

“The goal of these days is not to seek revival, but to seek the Revivaler.”

“You do not finish well by accident.”

“Our thirst is quenched only by the superior greatness of God through His Son, Jesus.”

“Benefits & evidences of being filled w/ the Spirit:

  • Assurance of salvation
  • Exhibit Christ’s character
  • Experience victory over sinful habits
  • Empowered to witness”

“One of the evidences that there is not revival is that there is not love.”

“Loving others is not an option.”

“Loving your enemy through the avenue of forgiveness causes us to look more like Christ.”

“Unmet expectations create hurt.”

“You cannot deplete the reservoir of grace!”

“GOD, I NEED YOU!!!”

“GRACE – The dynamic quality of God within me, giving me the desire & power to live in obedience w/ God & His Word.”

“What is grace needed for:

  • For salvation
  • For suffering
  • For strength
  • For sanctification”

“Living & operating in the grace of God requires humility & obedience.”

Nearly every person I talked to said that this was the best revival experience they’d ever had.  One 70 year-old man told me that he had never experienced true revival in his entire 70 years until this week.  All I can say is, “Thank you, Lord!”

    This was by far the best revival I have ever been in. Some of my notes:
    Do we seek God? Or the blessings of God?
    God is a substitute for everything, but nothing is a substitute for God.
    Our thirst is quenched only by the superior greatness of God through His Son Jesus Christ.
    Focus on the eternal, not the temporal.
    It is impossible to live the Christian life in our own human strength. It is only possible through the power of the Holy Spirit.
    It’s not about trying harder – it’s about surrender.
    Being under the influence of the Holy Spirit is a conscious decision to allow Him to empower you.
