Revive Us Again

Posted by Al Hathaway Sunday, July 26, 2009

In the battle to sway our youth from the dead ends streets and lifestyles that lead nowhere, attempts are being made all across the country to reach out to young people to avoid gang life and criminal activity. An article describing the attempt of a local church to hold a meeting for young people who had been arrested and sent to juvenile detention and where now out on the streets to appeal to them not to get arrested again and to show them positive alternatives. Unfortunately the articles states that "of the 28 youth that the meeting was designed for, none came." On the surface this would seem depressing. On the surface this would seem futile to seek to save youth people who are lost.


But, isn't that the purpose of the salvation message of Jesus Christ that he comes to save the lost and will not stop until they are found."

We can never give up on our youth. Regardless of how difficult it may seem.

I remember an old song that will encourage you.

"We praise Thee, O God, for the son of Thy love, For Jesus who died and is now gone above.
Hallelujah, Thine the glory! Hallelujah, amen! Hallelujah, Thine the glory! Revive us again.

We praise Thee, O God, for Thy Spirit of light, Who has shown us our Savior and scattered our night.
Hallelujah, Thine the glory! Hallelujah, amen! Hallelujah, Thine the glory! Revive us again.

All glory and praise to the Lamb that was slain, Who has borne all our sins and has cleansed every stain.
Hallelujah, Thine the glory! Hallelujah, amen! Hallelujah, Thine the glory! Revive us again.

Revive us again-fill each heart with Thy love; May each soul be rekindled with fire from above. Hallelujah, Thine the glory! Hallelujah, amen! Hallelujah, Thine the glory! Revive us again."
