Revive Us: Return to God

Revive Us: Return to God

We are in a series at Cornerstone called Revive Us: Spiritual Awakening and Renewal. Lately, there has been a lot of attention about revival. Though the word revival isn’t found in the Bible, there are accounts of significant outpourings of God’s Spirit on his people, times of spiritual reform, and times of awakening in the spiritual lives of God’s people. How can we experience this renewal? John the Baptist shared a message of repentance, calling us back to the God that created us. Today, we learn the results of true repentance.
