The history of the Seventh-day Adventist Church is replete with examples of missed opportunities that would allow the special outpouring of the Holy Spirit to work in hearts and prepare the way for the latter rain. The church has allowed lesser things to become more important than “the greatest of all our needs.”
In 1887, Ellen White begged us to “look to Jesus,” and her well-known call still echoes today.
“A revival of true godliness among us is the greatest and most urgent of all our needs. To seek this should be our first work.”
When the disciples prayed for the endowment of the Spirit in the upper room, they reached a point of surrender never before attained. “One interest prevailed. The ambition of the believers was to reveal the likeness of Christ’s character and to labor for the enlargement of His kingdom.”
When we receive the Spirit, it will be seen by the lives we live and the burden we have for the lost.
In Adventism’s Greatest Need, Dr. Ron Clouzet shares sound biblical concepts through powerful stories that illustrate with compelling conviction this overarching theme, the Holy Spirit is poised and ready to reignite an end-time people in their quest for true godliness.
