To “revive” something means to bring it back to life. Psa. 85:6 asks, “Will You not revive us again, that Your people may rejoice in You?”
Note that revival leads directly to rejoicing. If you were dead and someone brought you back to life, wouldn’t you rejoice too?
Revival is a church word. The secular world doesn’t need revived, they need a rebirth (a completely new begining).
Christians have already been reborn, but sometimes we need brought back to life.
Psa. 80:18 – “Revive us, and we will call on Your name.” Come back to life and call on Jesus!
May God’s Love be with you
