A man once asked his pastor what it would take for a true Holy Spirit revival to come upon his life and ministry. The pastor said he would have to baptize him in order to show him. In the baptismal tank, the pastor covered the man's nose and gently lowered him under the water, but rather than lifting him back up, the pastor continued to hold him under the water. The man began to struggle a bit, but the pastor's grip was firm. In a panic, the man began to thrash about violently, trying to get free.
Visibly shaken and gasping for breath, the man shouted, "What in the world are you trying to do?"
The pastor calmly replied, "When you are as desperate for revival as you were just now for air, then the Lord will send revival."
