That’s why I said that revival begins by turning the I into a cross. Revival crosses out the things that have been spoiling our life and replaces that I with Christ. He who is eternal comes to take his place right in the center–not on one side, nit just near, but right in the center. The cross cancels out the self, but replaces that self by Jesus Christ. Your dry experience becomes fullness. What was empty is no longer empty. What was helplessness experiences power.
