‘Back to the love and the grace’

 

Our church will hold a new Revival starting from this Friday, March 23rd, until the following Sunday, March 25th. I have felt the need to have a Revival at our church ever since my first service on February 11th. At that time I noticed that the congregation looked different from my previous visits and that you were thirsty for spiritual rejuvenation. So, immediately I began to search for the speaker for a Revival and thankfully was able to get the commitment from the speaker I wanted.

 

Rev. Duk-Joo Lee had taught for many years at Methodist Seminary in Korea and as the top expert on the history of Korean churches, he authored several books on this subject. On weekends, he had led many Revivals in big churches in the city or small churches on isolated islands in Korea and traveled all over the world to lead Revivals and to lecture. The reason why we were able to get hold of him for our Revival was that he had retired from the Seminary last month and planned to stay home quietly, and declined all the other invitations. When I pleaded and asked for his help, he obliged me by accepting the invitation.

 

The theme of this Revival is ‘Back to the love and the grace’, which I believe was chosen by God for our congregation. I hope and pray that our church be restored to the love and bestowed with the grace, so that the river of grace will overflow in our church, where the wounds are healed and grieving turns to rejoicing, and new hopes and new strength are granted.

 

One of the reasons why the churches in Korea were able to grow the fastest in the world history was due to the important role of Revivals. Prophet Habakkuk prayed, “O LORD, renew them in our day, in our time make them known!” May his prayer be our prayer today! I hope no one misses this opportunity, and please bring your children also.

 

There be simultaneous Revivals; our children’s Revival will be led by Rev. Jinny Song and our youth’s Revival will be led by Evangelist Yong-Ji Lee, the Youth Pastor of Flushing KUMC, NY. All of us can vouch for Rev. Song’s spirituality and influential sermons, and Evangelist Yong-Ji Lee, highly recommended by the Senior Pastor of Flushing KUMC, is the daughter of our speaker Rev. Duk-Joo Lee. She had earned her Doctorate in the Old Testament in England, then came to study at Wesley Theological Seminary, and is now serving as a full time pastor for the youth. English translation will be provided for the Revival at the main sanctuary. I pray that the grace be bestowed upon our children also, so as to renew the whole family.  As shown in the video for the Revival, “We live every day with fierce intensity. If we were relying on our own strength, we would fall. Let God take over our tired souls and let us experience the grace and guidance of God in our lives.” I hope that at 8 p.m. on this Friday, you will meet with Lord Jesus who has been waiting for you!
