Why We Need a Fresh Encounter with God


“The problem today is that churches are striving to win their world to Christ without having first been revived themselves.  The result is spiritually comatose church members going door-to-door asking unbelievers if they would like to have what they have – spiritual anemia!  Such an invitation is patently unappealing.  It explains the high dropout rate in churches today.  Newborn spiritual babes are being placed into churches filled with spiritually lethargic people.  It is a recipe for disillusionment.”

Henry and Richard Blackaby, with Claude King, Fresh Encounter: God’s Pattern for Spiritual Awakening (Nashville: B & H Publishing Group, 2009), 18
