As most of you have heard revival has broken out at Asbury University in Kentucky. As I write this it has been going on for 11 days…around the clock! Praise God!

This is not a planned revival service where you invite a guest preacher to come preach a series of messages and have special music and different themes each night like pack a pew, bring your friends, etc.  That’s not revival. That’s just special church meetings planned by man.

Revival is not a meeting. It is a movement of God…not man. It is when God shows up big time. God, the creator of the universe, meets with you, shows you His glory, reveals your shortcoming, revives your love for Him as you humbly seek Him in repentance, humbleness, and worship… and at times, does that to others at the same time! And as revival grows…people are saved for they see God!  Awesome!

The revival at Asbury began after a regular, ordinary chapel service. No one was expecting it, even though many had prayed for revival. Videos from Asbury show students and visitors worshiping God…some kneeling, some with raised hands, some dancing, some standing or sitting quietly.  Individuals and groups are seen kneeling and praying at the altar and throughout the auditorium. I’ve heard it described as simple, humble,

One article pointed out that the auditorium hasn’t been modernized to have lights, smoke machines, comfortable seats… the things often deemed necessary to draw people. God is there. He’s the draw and is still who draws people to our churches today.  The music is simply worshipful. People singing love songs to God.

I praise God for this movement of His Spirit. I praise Him for the difference several thousand young people on fire for Him can make in their families, in their cities, in our country, and in our world!

I thank God for reminding me and a watching world that He is alive and active in the world today.

I plead with God for revival in my life and in your life. Break into our ordinary lives and show us your glory.  Restore us to the joy of our salvation. Set our hearts on fire so we truly worship and live for you and so others see you in us and are drawn to You in salvation.

Oh, that you would burst from the heavens and come down! How the mountains would quake in your presence! 2As fire causes wood to burn and water to boil, your coming would make the nations tremble. Then your enemies would learn the reason for your fame! 3When you came down long ago, you did awesome deeds beyond our highest expectations. And oh, how the mountains quaked! 4For since the world began, no ear has heard and no eye has seen a God like you, who works for those who wait for him! 5You welcome those who gladly do good, who follow godly ways. But you have been very angry with us, for we are not godly. We are constant sinners; how can people like us be saved? 6We are all infected and impure with sin. When we display our righteous deeds, they are nothing but filthy rags. Like autumn leaves, we wither and fall, and our sins sweep us away like the wind. 7Yet no one calls on your name or pleads with you for mercy. Therefore, you have turned away from us and turned us over to our sins. 8 and yet, O LORD, you are our Father. We are the clay, and you are the potter. We all are formed by your hand. 9Don’t be so angry with us, LORD. Please don’t remember our sins forever. Look at us, we pray, and see that we are all your people. Isaiah 64: 1- 9 (NLT)

Revive us, O Lord! 

Will you not revive us again, that your people may rejoice in you? Psalm 85:6 ESV 

Revive me, O Lord!

The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. Lamentations 3:21-23



1 Chronicles 16:29 (NASB) Ascribe to the Lord the glory due His name; Bring an offering and come before Him; Worship the Lord in holy array. 

Worship God with us on Sunday mornings at 11am in the sanctuary where every other pew has been closed to allow for social distancing OR worship Him from the safety of your home. It’s not as important where you worship Him, but that you worship Him.

Please stay at home until you feel safe resuming in-person worship especially if you are over 65 years old or have health issues.

Our worship services include a time to share and pray for needs, to study the Sunday School lesson, a time of musical worship, and a time to hear the Word preached. All completed in only 1 hour.  After the worship service, take time to visit with your church family 6 feet apart on the grass lawns leaving the sidewalks open for people to walk on.

There are needs at the church, in Augusta, and world-wide that you can meet by giving to Lake Park. Part of the monies received pay expenses that continue at Lake Park. Part go to meet needs at various ministries throughout the world. That is the beauty of the Cooperative Program as Southern Baptists combine gifts to meet needs and share God’s love.

You can bring your offering to church on Sunday morning and drop it in the offering box in the foyer or mail it to the church at 211 Milledge Rd, Augusta, GA 30904, or drop it in the mail slot on the office entrance door anytime.

God is our refuge and strength, a tested help in times of trouble. And so we need not fear even if the world blows up and the mountains crumble into the sea. Let the oceans roar and foam; let the mountains tremble! PSALM 46: 1-3 (The Living Bible)
