“I know all the things you do, that you are neither hot nor cold. I wish that you were one or the other! 16 But since you are like lukewarm water, neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of my mouth" (Revelation 3:15-16 NKJ).
Addiction recovery is a long and involved process for all concerned – not just the addict. But whether you are the addict in recovery, or the family members, friends or co-workers, one thing is certain: there’s no point in continually focusing on the bad memories.

Spiritual revival only starts when there is a move of God. When in the presence of the glory of God’s holiness, we cannot but fall down and worship him.

If we accept, God will purge us of our sin. We are now ready for the final step of spiritual revival, God’s calling and our joyful obedience to his calling.
