Because, if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes and is justified, and with the mouth one confesses and is saved. (Romans 10:9-10)

When God Moves Among His People (Acts 2:36-42)Joe Dillon, Interim Pastor, March 8, 2020
Part of the Let The Church be the Church series, preached at a Sunday Morning service
When God Moves Among His People
Revival is the restoration of something that lived yet died. It is a supernatural resurrection. The primary demonstration of revival is the Power of God and His Presence with His people that leads to transformation.
1. Revival is dependent on repentance. Vs 38
• Recognition of what we’ve lost, gripped by the reality of our fallen position.
• The fellowship of the frozen (dead) chosen.
• Grief over hardness of heart. vs 37 (comfortable in our deadness) Jeremiah 2:4-13
2. Without prayer there is no power.
• Prayer recognizes our powerlessness, His powerfulness and our desperate circumstances.
3. Obedience, the key to continuance. John 14:12-21

36Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly, that God hath made that same Jesus, whom ye have crucified, both Lord and Christ. 37Now when they heard this, they were pricked in their heart, and said unto Peter and to the rest of the apostles, Men and brethren, what shall we do? 38Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. 39For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call. 40And with many other words did he testify and exhort, saying, Save yourselves from this untoward generation. 41Then they that gladly received his word were baptized: and the same day there were added unto them about three thousand souls. 42And they continued stedfastly in the apostles' doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers. (KJV)
