We are a dehydrated people.
Nothing will quench our thirst and end the drought
but God pouring out his Spirit once again.
Only a fraction of the promise was fulfilled
at the time of the apostles.
Must it not now be fulfilled on a larger scale?
This stream of the Spirit will come--
let us await it with confidence.
The thirst is almost killing us,
and people are deteriorating both
inwardly and outwardly.
because we need this Spirit,
God will give it again.
--Johann Christoph Blumhardt
