All over the Pentecostal church, I see the constant hope for revival. When Pentecostal people do pray, revival is always mentioned. Frankly, I'm tired of hearing it.
In Isaiah 61, after it lists what Jesus is going to do (heal the sick, free the captives), it says “THEY shall rebuild the ancient ruins.” It didn't say Jesus would do it... it said that we would do it. What are the ancient ruins?
There is no doubt that we are to evangelize. But what does it mean to "make disciples," and how does this compare to the modern conservative approach to evangelism where we hope to bring someone to the point where they are willing to pray "the sinner's prayer?" An even better question is what does it mean to become a disciple?
