“Revived by His Word” Initiative Launches
Beginning April 17, Seventh-day Adventists around the world are invited to read one chapter of the Bible every day up until the July 2015 conclusion of the General Conference session. “Revived by His Word,” as the initiative is called, is gaining support from church members and leaders around the world.
“Around the world, and particularly in Africa, I have seen the transforming power of the Bible in the lives of people at every level,” said Pardon Mwansa, a general vice president of the world church who is involved with the project. “By committing to this program of daily, prayerful Scripture reading, I believe Seventh-day Adventists will not only learn much about the God they serve, they will also find a great blessing,” he added.
According to organizers, “the goal of the entire project is to provide an opportunity for Jesus to speak to His people through His Word so they will know Him better, seek Him more deeply, and share His love more fully.”
“If there’s one habit that will change the life and conversations of Adventists around the globe, it’s the habit of daily placing ourselves before the open Word of God and filling our minds with the message of God’s love,” said Bill Knott, editor of Adventist World and a member of the church’s Revival and Reformation Committee. “I’m praying that thousands—hundreds of thousands—of believers will take up this challenge and make the next three years a time of special grace and power for this remnant people.”
