Do You Want To Be Revived? (Matthew 16:21-28)Billy Hearon, September 8, 2019
Part of the Revival 2019 series, preached at a Sunday Evening service
Many a Christians are trying to find a new way of worship. We ought to be following after Christ and His will. Do you want to be revived?
1. Deny yourself.
We live in a time of self. Selfies and the such prove that it’s all about self. If you’re wanting to follow Jesus you must deny yourselves. Children are suicidal, drugs, peer pressure. It’s all attacking our youths. Satan goes around and is destroying our youth. Mothers and fathers must come together with Christ to fend off the devil. Adults have a fear of sharing Jesus in their workplaces. First off, who gave you that job, you or God?
2. Take up His cross.
The Christian life is NOT a life of ease. Christ walked by and seen someone that they loved. Even though we were dirty and full of sin, He wanted to help you, save you from death and Hell. Religion is NOT what He gives you, it’s salvation. Once you’ve been born again you’re indebted to Him, ALWAYS! You should have a desire to go to the house of God. If your hungry don’t you find something to eat? If you have a job don’t you push yourself to wake and go?
God is still God! No matter where or what.
Has there not been times when you just keep pushing something back all the while Jesus keeps saying do it or say it? We should be a reflection of Christ. Be a light for Christ.
Anyone can get happy when things are going good. It’s when they are having rough times when it’s important to reflect what Christ means to you.
Are you ready for revival?

21From that time forth began Jesus to shew unto his disciples, how that he must go unto Jerusalem, and suffer many things of the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and be raised again the third day. 22Then Peter took him, and began to rebuke him, saying, Be it far from thee, Lord: this shall not be unto thee. 23But he turned, and said unto Peter, Get thee behind me, Satan: thou art an offence unto me: for thou savourest not the things that be of God, but those that be of men. 24Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me. 25For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it. 26For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul? 27For the Son of man shall come in the glory of his Father with his angels; and then he shall reward every man according to his works. 28Verily I say unto you, There be some standing here, which shall not taste of death, till they see the Son of man coming in his kingdom. (KJV)
