Which brings me to my third encouraging point: history tells a story of consistent successful evangelism. It's fairly staggering to think how Christianity has grown from a tiny maligned so-called 'sect' into such a phenomenally large family. I might be saddened at the thought that less than 10% of my country are regular church-goers, but there once was a time where the figure was more like 0%.
Waves of revival have swept the UK in the past, why not today?
The church is spreading rapidly in China, why not here?
We have the same Spirit, and the same gospel. Anything could happen.
