The First Great AwakeningPastor Lutzer | September 29, 1991
The First Great Awakening came due to an overwhelming conviction of sin.
Selected highlights from this sermon
The situation in the northeastern part of the United States was spiritually declining. The generations that followed the Puritans were not as fervent as their forbearers and the churches began to stagnate. God dramatically intervened, using the preaching of men like Jonathan Edwards and George Whitefield. The knowledge of sin increased moved people to repentance. The First Great Awakening was an extraordinary example of God’s work in our country’s history.
