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)

Psalm 34:17 - "The righteous cry out, and the Lord hears them; He delivers them from all their troubles."

Start saying this over and over each day, "The Lord is at work in my situation. He's bringing me into the place I ought to be. He's delivering me now."

This is not the time to sit on the sidelines and just try to get comfortable. It's time to seek His face for His perfect will and then carry it out with all our might. It's time to plow our time and energy, our all in all, into advancing His Kingdom through His purpose for our life.

Let's go forth with all our strength and with all of the force of faith within us with the message of God's faith and love in Jesus. Together, we can do all things through Christ (the Anointed One and His anointing) which strengthens us.
