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 Your Breakthrough

Posted 01-12-2024 at 10:41 PM by Albert Finch

The ascended life – living from Heaven – dwelling in that sense of His presence and living from there releases revelation into your life. Revelation and information are not equal or the same. You can have a lot of good Biblical information but it may seem lifeless to you because it is simply a ritual.

Feel His cross – feel His blood – It is real. It is You must have spiritual hunger, a strong prayer life, as well as time affirming and meditating on the Word to have the Holy Spirit move you into higher and more efficient states of mind. Remember, the letter kills, but the Spirit gives life.

Romans 8:26, "Likewise the Spirit also helps in our weaknesses. For we do not know what we should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself makes intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered."

Ask, Seek, and Knock Until You Find Understanding Of Your Christ Calling - (Matthew 7:7)

Psalms 16:7, "I will bless the Lord who has given me counsel; my heart also instructs me in the night seasons."

Breakthrough awaits in the night seasons; find your place of seeking God where His light will find you. The eyes of the Lord are searching for you.

Prosperity and blessing are found in the hidden places with God. His dwelling place is the launching place for your calling in Christ. Don't believe satan when He tells you that you are insignificant and not important. Acknowledge your oneness with Jesus, setting Him first above all things, and He will use you as the vessel for His glory as you are led to bear fruit that remains for His Kingdom through your Christ calling.

    Thank you for sharing these profound reflections on the essence of spiritual growth. Your insights resonate deeply, emphasizing the transformative power of self-sacrifice and the commitment to a purpose beyond oneself. Indeed, attending church, reading the Bible, and listening to Christian music are valuable components of understanding, but your reminder of the necessity to go further to lay down one's life and take up the cross is a powerful call to action.

    I pray that each of us will have the fortitude to separate from worldly distractions and, in doing so, realize the greatness of our purpose in furthering the cause of Jesus Christ worldwide.
