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 - March 8, 2019

Posted 03-08-2019 at 02:12 PM by Albert Finch (How Do I Advance My Spiritual Life?)

While we all have different assignments, we all have the same ultimate goal. In this race, it says, "Let us fix our eyes on Jesus." Jesus is to be our focus. He is to be our "One Thing." Jesus is the way, the truth, and the life. He is our destination, destiny, and dreams come true.


More than ever with what we are facing in 2019;
the tribulations of this world, advancing in God's purpose for our life -- above all else, we need to be fixing our eyes...

Seeing Beyond The Natural

Posted 02-26-2019 at 10:38 AM by Albert Finch (How Do I Advance My Spiritual Life?)

The very first miracle of Jesus turning water into wine in John 2 provides some clues as to how we might access the reality of what we have read and studied in His Word.

There was a wedding in Cana of Galilee. Jesus was there and a need arose. Jesus was asked, and He responded by turning the water into wine. He thus openly revealed His glory for the first time in public. This miracle opened the flow for others, and Jesus went on to heal the official's son, then the invalid by the...

Daily meditations and affirmations - 274

John 14:30 - ".......for the prince of this world cometh, and hath nothing in me."

Pauperhood is relegated to the children of a lesser god. It is the condition of slaves who have yet to discover their freedom on the other side of the river of baptism and find themselves still captured by the dark prince of torture and torment. He is the one who assigns them to a life of poverty, pain, and depression through a diabolical play of illusion. He hopes to conceal their...

Daily Meditations And Affirmations - 243

Posted 11-01-2018 at 09:51 PM by Albert Finch (How Do I Advance My Spiritual Life?)


Hebrews 11:1 - "Now, faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things that you cannot see."


Physical sight is the ability to see things as they are. Vision is the capacity to see things as they should be, and that takes faith.
The scripture says that "For we walk by faith, and not by sight" (2 Corinthians 5:7). We must never let what our eyes see determine what our hearts believe. In other words, we are to walk according...

Seeking Communion - September 25, 2018

Posted 09-25-2018 at 07:49 AM by Albert Finch (How Do I Advance My Spiritual Life?)

"The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because He hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised." - Luke 4:18

God is bringing us to a place where we know the Spirit of the Lord is upon us. If we have not got to that place, God wants to bring us to the fact of what Jesus said in John 14, "...I will pray the...
