We are poor:
- in the Word
- in power
- in righteousness
- in the pulpits
A lacking of genuine:
We are poor in the Word and in power. We are poor in knowing what it is to experience the convicting of the Holy Spirit.
We don’t know how to repent. Repentance is not emotion, but it is a change of the will. The Word of God is the only power that we need. We base everything and all decisions on how it is going to affect us. We should approach things with how does this affect God?
We need genuine repentance and for people to find Christ. God will look at all you have done when you stand before Him to give an account for what we have done.
We are poor in righteousness because we are poor in knowing God. We know ABOUT God, but we don’t know God.
In new birth, there is a new desire. If you have genuinely been born again you will have new desires. A desire to know Him, to love Him, to please Him, and to serve Him.
A reason we have not received a move of God is that there is a lack of power in preaching and in our pulpits.
