The wells of our spiritual fathers and mothers need to be reopened in this generation; the fact is that many have never drunk of the wells of which they drank. This sermon reminds us that the destiny of the church is not wrapped up only in the new but also in the ancient paths – in retrieving ancient ways such as prayer, evangelism, Spirit baptism and consecration. But as well as re-digging old wells, we are reminded that we need to dig new wells and lay claim to new spiritual territory in our generation – so that we will leave a legacy from which future generations can drink.
