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)

Scripture Of The Day – January 23, 2022

Posted 01-23-2022 at 01:59 PM by Albert Finch

"Let there be light; and there was light." - Genesis 1:3

What God wants in the earth today may not be in sight. But when His Word goes forth, it becomes a reality. He is looking for vessels through whom His Word will be spoken so that He can do what He has not yet done.


We often lose by being silent. We don't lift our voice and speak the Word enough.

We have to stir ourselves up and declare that God's Word is true even when we don't feel like it.

We have to say "by He stripes I'm healed" when we don't feel good.

We have to say "my God shall supply all my needs" when we don't have enough money.


The Holy Spirit is always working in our lives. He's moving, giving assignments, enabling, empowering, instructing, correcting, and undergirding. He won't stop until He's finished, until His plan is complete.

Has it ever seemed as if God is silent for a while? You wondered if you'd done something wrong. Where is God in the silence? You have to understand that He is not inactive when you don't hear from Him. He's always working in your life. He's lining things up and getting them ready so the moment you speak a word in faith - FRUITION - it comes to pass.
