Revival isn’t a spectacular event in the clouds. It’s in your own life. Revival doesn’t require big meetings with famous speakers. revival begins with you. It’s the eruption of God’s grace shaking you utterly, through and through and through. When that happens, I want to encourage you. You are in the presence of a wonderful person called Jesus Christ. revival begins in his presence.

Let him begin in you. 

(Festo KivengereWhen God Moves in Revival: An Outstanding African Speaks to American Christians, 21).

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.
