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)

Seeking Communion - November 28, 2021

Posted 11-28-2021 at 11:31 AM by Albert Finch

For those who are faint in their heart be of good cheer for the Lord has overcome all that surrounds you. Remember He said, "lo, I am with you always, even until the end of time." (Matthew 28:20)

Draw Him into the situation that is trying to draw you into the valley of fear. As you draw Him in, His faith within you (Galatians 2:20) rises up, fear will bow down and diminish.

Let the faith that He has given you -- let that gift be opened to a greater degree. Release the faith that is within you. Allow Him to take that faith, even that tiny mustard seed, and speak multiplication, for He has not come to judge your unbelief. He has come to celebrate your mustard seed.

Call Him in as the One who brings the breakthrough. Call Him as the One who holds time in His hand. Call Him in as the beginning, the Alpha and the Omega. Call Him in to be the One who stands as the Good Shepherd, and takes His staff and hits the ground, and takes His rod and beats back all that would come to oppose you.

Let His Word rise up, mixed with faith. Let praise be the crown that you would send on the wings of an angel back to Him. As you bring forth honor and glory to His name, He will turn the tide that wants to drown you and rob you of your faith, for He comes to multiply faith -- and bring healing and wholeness.

Use the authority of His name. Cease to tremble. Let the demons flee and tremble. Command the waves to be still. Command the storms to cease. Command the Peace of Understanding to penetrate situations as He brings to your understanding revelation knowledge and crowns you with favor and wisdom on how and when to apply that understanding.

For such a time as this, He is lifting up a people who will decree, and who will declare, that Jesus is not only Lord but that they will say also in one accord -- 'It is Finished -- It is Written’ – let us bear fruit that remains for His glory.
