Revival or Reform?

Something rattling around in my brain lately has been the question: Do I ask for “revival” or “reformation?”

Jeremiah helps me out on this one:

This is what the Lord of heavenly forces, the God of Israel, says: Improve your conduct and your actions, and I will dwell with you in this place.Don’t trust in lies: “This is the Lord’s temple! The Lord’s temple! The Lord’s temple!” No, if you truly reform your ways and your actions; if you treat each other justly; if you stop taking advantage of the immigrant, orphan, or widow; if you don’t shed the blood of the innocent in this place, or go after other gods to your own ruin, only then will I dwell with you in this place, in the land that I gave long ago to your ancestors for all time. (Jer. 7:3-7, CEB)

Whatever you want to call it, we need it in this day.
