Isaiah 1:16-20 – VERBS FOR REVIVAL
Verbs are action words. For there to be a revival in a person, a church, or a nation, there needs to be action! If the many action words are followed in this passage there will be revival! Consider the:
VERBS OF PENANCE Vs. 16
wash and make clean
put away and cease
VERBS OF PERFORMANCE Vs. 17
learn, seek, relieve, judge, plead
VERBS OF PARTICIPATION Vs. 18
VERBS OF PURPOSE Vss. 19-20
We will be “willing and obedient” or we will “refuse and rebel”.
One set of verbs or the other reveals the purpose of my life!
