  • Made New In Christ

    “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!” 2 Corinthians 5:17

    With flowers popping up, and Easter just around the corner, the optimism of a new season is all around. Especially coming out of dark winter, the light and new life of spring offers a welcome reprieve, full of promise and hope.

    I have been inspired by all this newness to do some spring cleaning. I opened up the windows to let in the spring breeze and air out the stale corners of the house that haven’t seen the bright light of day in a while.

    Personally, there are parts of my heart that need the same treatment, corners in my heart that haven’t seen the bright light of day in a while. Parts of me that are still holding on the old ways instead of walking in the light of Christ as a new creation.

    That’s the beauty of this Scripture. As Christ-followers, we can throw open the shutters of our hearts and let the light of Jesus in to sweep through and renew us. We can breathe deep of new mercies. We are released from the slavery of sin, and are made new by the same power that raised Jesus from the dead. In Christ we are raised to new life, to walk in new ways, with new hope.

    Every Easter, we remember that the story of Jesus did not end at the cross. The cross was the plot twist-Jesus overcame death and the grave, and rose to life again. We have that same power living in us through the Holy Spirit. Through Jesus we have the power to leave the grave behind us and walk forward as a new creation.

    I love this song by Audrey Assad called New Every Morning. It reminds me of God’s love and the lengths he went to have relationship with us.  I hope you enjoy it too.

  • Join Us!

    Some incredible things are happening with Revive right now! We just launched our newest Bible study, Royal: Finding Your Identity in Christ with almost 200 people from 4 different countries! At the end of January, we partnered with 104.1 The Fish and spoke at Thrive! A Girls’ Night Out. Over 260 women shared a meal together, laughed and grew in faith together. Countless women came up afterward, telling us their stories and how in just one evening, their lives had been impacted. A unique opportunity for a radio show where we could talk about faith and life with up to 60,000 more people on a weekly basis is a possibly on the horizon.

    The response from women we encounter, both in person and online, has been overwhelming. We have seen God’s hand in every detail, including some exciting developments that God set into motion years ago. It feels like the floodgates are opening up before our very eyes. We are seeing a revival of the heart and soul in our homes, communities and churches.

    Recently we heard a quote that said, “The world is waiting for us to know who we are.” Can you imagine if women, churches and families were confident in who they are in Christ, allowing them to show the love of Christ and live missionally and intentionally? We are beginning to see it unfold and it is absolutely awe inspiring. It is truly a privilege and a gift to be able to join God where He is working.

    We are in the middle of fundraising for overall operations, for a potential radio ministry, online discipleship training for churches and small groups, as well as our very first women’s event. Our goal is to raise $50,000 by March 15th. Thanks to a generous donor, all donations to Revive Ministries will be matched over the next week, up to $15,000! This means that your gift will have twice the impact and will go toward helping women everywhere find their passion, purpose and power in Christ!

    Please prayerfully consider helping us meet our goal. Make your donation here.

    We also offer our sincere thanks to the generous donors who are already making so much possible. We love and appreciate you!
