Pride and Foolishness
"God resists the proud, but gives grace to the humble."
One of the greatest hindrances to Revival is pride amongst the Lord's people.
Pure and Perfect?
I have heard a mission leader declare: "I only want what God wants!". The Scripture declares that our righteousness is as filthy rags, that we should, after we have done all, admit that we are but unprofitable servants. Yet this individual would have us believe that his motives and intentions are completely pure and sanctified, that he “only wants what God wants!”
The Word of God categorically states:
"As it is written: there is none righteous, no not one; there is none who understands; there is none who seeks after God. They have all turned aside; they have together become unprofitable; there is none that does good, no not one."
