How to act during revival

"As persons will greatly expose themselves to the curse of God by opposing or standing at a distance and keeping silent at such a time as this, so for persons to arise and readily to acknowledge God and honor him in such a work and cheerfully and vigorously to exert themselves to promote it, will be to put themselves much in the way of the divine blessing."

Jonathan Edwards, "Thoughts on the Revival," in Works, I:386.
