Since a revival can never lay hold upon the world until it has first laid hold on the church, the need then is for the fountain of sin to be stopped up in the church. Christians who have fallen prey to sin must be brought to repentance. They must have their faith renewed. Before the world can be moved, we must renew the image of Jesus Christ in ourselves. It is vain even to call upon the church to love others when the church has ceased loving Christ first.
