Recipe for Spiritual Awakening
Spiritual Revival & Spiritual Awakening
Parents, ask your children, “What is the difference between spiritual awakening and spiritual revival?”
“Spiritual revival is God’s quickening visitation of his people, touching their hearts and deepening his work of grace in their lives” (J. I. Packer), whereas spiritual awakening is when the wider society is impacted by many coming to faith.
