Ideas to revive a church: preach, preach…

Ideas to revive a church: preach, preach, preach. Acts 6:7. Plant the seed, the word of God, and the church will grow. Yes, I know many elders don’t believe that, but it’s just as true now as when it was written. Look at a recent example. The church grew by “leaps and bounds” from 1920-1950s. Why? Because we were preaching the gospel every day. There were meetings conducted that were WEEKS and MONTHS, not days long. We were preaching on the radio, on television. We were preaching the gospel. What’s going on now? Now the two-to-three-day meeting is the norm. If we sew boutifully, we reap bountifully. If we sew sparingly, we reap sparingly (2 Cor 9). All of the construction of game centers and the millions of dollars spent for them can’t replace the preaching of the gospel.
