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)

Genesis 12:1 - "The LORD had said to Abram, "Go from your country, your people and your father's household to the land I will show you."

God is calling us to boldly follow Him into the unknown. As we do, we will be brought into a whole new place! The very things that many Believers have been crying out and contending for (even for years at a time) are beginning to take shape.

Though transition can feel shaky, uncomfortable, and even messy at times, the Lord is calling us to embrace this new path and bravely journey forward with Him. The Lord is calling His Bride to trust Him and follow His lead. As we bravely give the Lord our 'yes' and follow where He leads us—journeying with Him on this new and unfamiliar path—we are plowing up new ground.

You have come too far now to quit. Refuse to get weary in well-doing, and know that there are great and exciting things just ahead. God is bringing you into a whole new place, and others will be awestruck by where He takes you.
