5 Ways to Seek Revival

Andrew Fuller lived in a period in Baptist history much like ours.  Numbers were declining, controversies were stirring, souls were neglected, and the cultural climate was very rocky.  Fuller believed that one thing sorely needed was a revival.  To this end he listed 5 ways that those in his day could pursue revival

  1. Prayer
  2. Cultivation of Christianity in the home
  3. Witnessing to unbelievers
  4. Self-examination
  5. A spirit of generosity for those in need

Honestly, I find Fuller’s list interesting.  I would probably add something about the ministry of the Word.  Yet, I am very encouraged by the presence of cultivating Christianity in the home and having a spirit of generosity for those in need.

What do you think of Fuller’s list? 

This list was originally published in a little different format in The armies of the Lamb edited and introduced by Michael Haykin.

    All of those things will help to stoke the fire of faith.
