Going to church, reading the bible, listening to Christian music will not advance your spiritual life. These activities may give you more understanding but until you are ready to lay down your life and take up your cross this leads nowhere.

What I am talking about is the sacrifice of self to advance the cause of Jesus Christ in the world. There is a destiny that God had for each of us that only we can personally discover. We can discover it only by detaching from the world and making ourselves available for the Holy Spirit. By detaching from the world--now you have time--the commodity that most Christians are not willing to give.

Jesus said, "Self-help is not help at all. Self-sacrifice is the way, to finding yourself, your true self. (Matthew 16:25)

"God has planted eternity in the human heart." (Ecclesiastes 3:11)

"Anyone who lets himself be distracted from the work I plan for him is not fit for the Kingdom of God." (Luke 9:62)

"The most important thing is that I complete my mission, the work that the Lord Jesus gave me." (Acts 20:24)

"We have been sent to speak for Christ." (2 Corinthians 5:20)

"We are God's workmanship, created in Christ Jesus, to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do." (Ephesians 2:10)

Your First Message From Jesus

Jesus said, in effect, 'I am the temple of the new dispensation. I am going to take the place of this old temple and I am going to be ALL that that temple represented, but in a fuller and better way.'

It is very possible that your first message from...

Scripture Of The Day – January31, 2021

Posted 01-31-2022 at 10:52 AM by Albert Finch (How Do I Advance My Spiritual Life?)

2 Corinthians 3:18 says, "And we all, who with unveiled faces contemplate the Lord's glory, are being transformed into His image with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit."

When we pass the place of the flesh and enter beyond the veil into life in the spirit, we are one with Christ. What we need is the Holy Spirit to draw us deeper and deeper into the place of God's thoughts for our lives.

The enemy has strongholds in our lives...

Discipling Others

Posted 01-31-2022 at 02:08 AM by Albert Finch (How Do I Advance My Spiritual Life?)

The Holy Spirit is WITHIN us for our benefit, and UPON us to help others. (John 20:19-22, Acts 2:1-4)

God doesn't call us to earn money but to change lives (disciple others). If we will remain concerned about lives and doing the will of God, He will take care of the finances.

We are the lamp that dispenses His glory. He wants to pour more oil into us.
