Revival Meeting Service
The question “is the seed yet in the barn?” is really asking “what are you doing with what God has given you?” Revival is hard work. We work hard for what we want, but do we work hard for what God wants? God’s windows wait for man’s opening; how will we serve God?
We can plant our seed, water it, and cultivate it; but God provides sun, rain, and growth. What we do for ourselves merely angers God. If we do God’s will instead of ours, He will preserve our works.
God tells us to be strong and work. Where is our strength and honor? Have we done any work for God?
The seed is often in the barn because of inaction. Many Christians are content to be idle. They are not discerning in how they spend their money and time. Duty calls.
The seed is often in the barn because of ignorance. We must diligently consider our ways; it’s easy to find ways for self-pleasure, but it takes work to find out what God wants us to do. Sometimes the results of working for God take a long time to surface. Revival is a result of prayer, repentance, and hard work.
The seed is often in the barn because of indifference. We are eager to run to our own concerns, but neglect higher causes. Revival can come to America; let’s do something for the cause. We don’t work so we can give to God; we work for God.
The seed is often in the barn because of lack of involvement. All the people are called to the work. Let God stir you up. Don’t wait for someone else to get stirred; what about you? Don’t be “too busy” for God.
The seed is often in the barn because we’ve lost sight of Jesus Christ. We’ve placed our focus on worldly things rather than God. It’s time to tell people about salvation.
