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)

Isaiah 26:3 - "You, Lord, give perfect peace to those who keep their purpose firm and put their trust in you."

If your peace is disturbed, there is something wrong. Apply the blood of Jesus, and keep your mind stayed upon Jehovah, where hearts are fully blessed, finding as He promised, perfect peace and rest.

Keep your mind on God, gaining strength in Him day by day. We must keep in the spiritual tide -- God supreme, the altar within the body. Faith is the evidence, the power, the principle keeping us in rest.

We must have the Spirit in anointing, intercession, revelation, and great power in our ministry to others. "Our sufficiency is from God. who also made us sufficient as ministers of the...Spirit; for the...Spirit gives life" (2 Corinthians 3:5-6).
