Revive means to restore to consciousness; to regain life and new strength. It is our desire to engage students with the principles and teaching of Jesus Christ. We want to help grow your faith – not mom and dad’s faith but your faith in Jesus. Together with that mission focus in mind we hope to instill in the heart the importance of making disciples. Just attending a church or keeping our faith for ourselves doesn’t cut it. It is time to share your faith with the world!. This entire ministry’s purpose to make disciples that can make disciples.
re:VIVE began in the fall of 2014 in an effort to help students deepen their faith in God and take their faith to the next level becoming Disciple makers. Jesus said, “Follow me and i will make you fishers of men“. One of the goals of re:VIVE is to create disciple making disciples and we achieve this through a deeper, more personal study of God’s Word and how it applies to each of us while incorporating our faith story with God’s story and how we have been forever changed further building the confidence in the faithful story-telling process of evangelism. We currently meet my home (Pastor Mark) Sunday evenings at 6:30 and talk about Jesus over a cup of coffee. It is a great time. We are right now looking a study of Words of Jesus called “Written in Red”. Please come be a part of what the Lord is doing in the lives of young believers.
This Week –
This week we explored John 5. We met a man who was paralyzed for 38 years. Had has been trying to get into the pool for apparently some time only to fail to get in. But then here comes Jesus who come to the man and asks, Do you want to be made well?
I tend to view this scene like a movie. Jesus stooping down in front of this man. The man looking over Jesus shoulders at the crowd of people in the pool saying, How can I? There is noone to help me. He basically says, There is no hope.
Jesus wants to offer him and us hope and healing without ever getting into the water.
