Lloyd-Jones on our primary need

Arguing that “the gospel is literally the only hope for the world today,” [Lloyd-Jones] showed how the gospel always makes a powerful effect upon the world after there has first been a distinct quickening in the life of the church. The modern church was bypassing her primary need. She was adopting “methods of big business and advertising” instead of praying for a visitation of God. As the Belfast press reported his words: “The Church has never tried so hard to deal with the situation as she has tried in this century. We have never had so many organizations, we have never worked so hard, but we are not touching the situation.” (D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones: The Fight of Faith 1939-1981)
The greatest need of the hour is a new baptism and outpouring of the Holy Spirit in renewal and revival…The ultimate question facing us these days is whether our faith is in men and their power to organize, or in the truth of God in Christ Jesus and the power of the Holy Spirit.
