Seeking Purpose, Hope, and Vision

Posted 11-28-2023 at 11:00 PM by Albert Finch (How Do I Advance My Spiritual Life?)

"Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were making an appeal through us; we beg you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God." - 2 Corinthians 5:20k

We are His representatives on this earth. Jesus came so we would know what God was like. This we can easily accept. But, Jesus went on to say, "As the Father hath sent Me, even so, I send you" (John 20:21).

The Father was full of confidence that the Son would fulfill His mission successfully...

Gathering Fresh Bread

Posted 11-28-2023 at 04:16 PM by Albert Finch (How Do I Advance My Spiritual Life?)

"We have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous." - 1 John 2:1

When the Holy Spirit shows us an area that needs repentance, we must overcome the instinct to defend ourselves. We must silence the little lawyer who steps out from a dark closet in our minds, pleading. "My client is not so bad."

Christ alone is your true advocate.

John 17:3 This is Eternal Life

Posted 11-28-2023 at 03:01 PM by rjack567

November 28, 2023 – Exhortation

Posted 11-28-2023 at 03:30 AM by Albert Finch (How Do I Advance My Spiritual Life?)

According to the scriptures, before you were born again, you were without the Anointed One (Jesus). If you were without the Anointed One you were also without the anointing. But now, since you are one with Christ, you are in the anointing of Jesus. The anointing is available to you in every situation you face to destroy every yoke of bondage.

The anointing of God is God...
