The most significant force in the revitalization of any local church is the ongoing ministry of the Word of God Sunday after Sunday. If you’re a church member in a church that needs revitalization, you should pray that God will raise up a faithful biblical expositor to preach God’s Word from the pulpit. If that’s already happening, pray that God will sustain that man in his difficult work, for there often comes a time in church revitalization when unregenerate church members “will not endure sound teaching” but will seek to gather around themselves teachers to say what their itching ears long to hear.

2 Timothy 4:3

     3     For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but wanting to have their ears tickled, they will accumulate for themselves teachers in accordance to their own desires,

NASB95
