BIBLE STUDY OUTLINE
THEME: REVIVE YOUR WORK (PEOPLE) IN THE MIDST OF THE YEARS.
TOPIC: HINDERANCES TO GENUINE REVIVAL
TEXT: MARK 6:5; 2 TIMOTHY 4:10
Aim: The aim of the study is to help us identify the things that could hinder genuine revival in our lives and society and how to overcome them.
The enormous challenges confronting the world today can only be taken care of by a fresh out pouring of the Holy Spirit, manifesting in God’s grace and power through a revived church.
The Lord wants to show us His power, His glory, and His grace but certain factors pose as obstacles to the manifestation of His purpose. As we identify the obstacles in the course of this study, may He grant us the grace to overcome them and make ourselves available for the Master’s use.
