Revived to Revive!

We need REVIVAL!

  • Renew
  • Emerge
  • Value
  • Intimate
  • Victor
  • Active
  • Love

Little Bailey (small pit) was revived by a family in Georgia.  Found in the streets completely emaciated, bruised, sick and lost.  This family took the dog straight to the vet, got immediate care and meds for Bailey.  Now she is super whole! Super fun! Super loving. We are revived to revive.

If God did it for Bailey–how much more would he do it for us?  We need to believe God that America can be revived again! From so much loss, trials and tragedy.  We are emaciated spiritually–down to skin and bones.  God send REVIVAL to us.

“Then we will not turn back from You;
Revive us, and we will call upon Your name.”
Psalm 80:18

Revival is restoration to life, vigor, strength; an awakening; quicken; renew in mind.

Renew–God wants to renew us as His word declares:

“Create in me a pure heart and renew a steadfast spirit within me.”
Psalm 51:10

Emerge–is to rise and come to surface.  This is to develop after coming out of a hidden place. Declared in His word:

“Arise, shine; for your light has come! And the glory of the Lord is risen upon you.
Isaiah 60:1

Value–understanding our relative worth to God, to others and the body of Christ.

“Do not fear therefore; you are of more value than many sparrows.”
Matthew 10:31

Intimate–a condition of being in close association which is how God wants us to be with Him.

“As we come close to Him, He comes close to us.”
James 4:7

Victors–we are persons that have overcome and defeated many adversaries.  This is because God has given us the victory.

“Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us.” Romans 8:37

Active–participation and motion.  God called us to move and work in a large scale. We have many to bring this Good News too!

“But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.”
Acts 1:8

Love–a passionate and unconditional affection; personal attachment. God loved us first and poured out His love in our hearts so that we can walk in love with others.

“I, therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, beseech you to walk worthy of the calling with which you were called, with all lowliness and gentleness, with longsuffering, bearing with one another in loveendeavoring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.”
Ephesians 4:1-3

Those are some words I put together recently to minister at our church.  We were all invigorated. Listen–I don’t know about you but I don’t want to be numb to the movement of God.  I don’t want to be average.  I don’t want to be left out or left behind.  There is revival taking place and I want to be a huge part of that revival.  I have a voice and I have a gift to write it out.

Church! We need revival. Let’s pray for that.

Blessings to all that are viewing this. My name is Christina Cruz-Mendez. I am a Pastor at Mission United International Church in Yonkers, NY working along side my husband Juan A. Mendez Jr. Senior Pastor. We have been together for 25 years with 2 children that God has blessed us with. Makes us the family of four - "JusChrist4". I have been a Christian and active in ministry for about 17 years now. Through all the rocky and smooth roads in life I am eternally grateful that God has brought me this far in life to share with the world what He is doing in me, through me and for me.
