How would you feel if the bank took your money and used it to play the lottery or gamble with it? So, how does God feel?
Because Jesus Christ is a man, He feels what we feel.
Because He is God, He can do something about it.

Revival is the return of God's manifest presence to His people for the purpose of them renewing their relationship with Him, with each other and for the good of the broader society.

I was sweating and puffing when I looked to my right and saw a man walking half as fast as I was, but going faster. He was walking on a moving sidewalk. When we walk in the Spirit, eh comes underneath us and bears us along. We're still walking, but we walk dependent on him.
