Reshaping Our Desires

Posted 11-24-2023 at 11:53 PM by Albert Finch (How Do I Advance My Spiritual Life?)

As God's people we learn to live on the basis of walking our Christ identity and hearing God's voice and obeying His word.

"The words that I say to you I do not speak on my own authority; but the Father who dwells in me does his works." - John 14:10

Once when we are in harmony with our Christ calling the Holy Spirit begins to reshape our values and desires -- stripping away those that are worthless to advancing His Kingdom.

Fleeing To The Power Of His Cross

Becoming The Word

Posted 11-24-2023 at 06:42 PM by Albert Finch (How Do I Advance My Spiritual Life?)

When people experience Christians preaching the Word without us ALSO BECOMING THE WORD, the Gospel gets reduced to a mere philosophy -- princilples to be argued and words that can be wrangled over.


But when the Word becomes flesh and dwells among them, they find themselves pierced to the heart and convicted in the depths of their very souls.

Hebrews 1:7 - "Who makes....his servants flames of fire."

Keeping Your Mind In Heavenly Places - Meditations

Posted 11-24-2023 at 06:20 PM by Albert Finch (How Do I Advance My Spiritual Life?)

He is involved in each moment of your life. He has carefully mapped out every inch of your journey through this day, even though much of it may feel haphazard. Because the world is in a fallen condition, things always seem to be unraveling around the edges. Expect to find trouble in this day. At the same time, trust that His way is perfect, even in the midst of such messy imperfection.

Stay conscious of Him as you go through this day, remembering your oneness with Christ. Let the...
