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)

Awakened To The Zeal Of The Lord

Posted 10-28-2021 at 11:40 PM by Albert Finch (How Do I Advance My Spiritual Life?)

Acts 2:2 - "And suddenly a sound came for heaven like the rush of a mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting."

For some of us there have been certain promises of the Lord in our heart, certain things in the area of dreams, visions, and even prophetic words, where we see ourselves ministering in certain aspects of the gifts of the Holy Spirit. A FRESH WIND OF THE SPIRIT is where the Lord will begin to endow those gifts -- we will begin to see those...

Seeking Communion – October 28, 2021

Posted 10-28-2021 at 01:54 AM by Albert Finch (How Do I Advance My Spiritual Life?)

Song of Solomon 2:4 - "He brought me into the wine-cellars and set love in order within me." -- You come from your delightful fellowship with the King (Jesus) intoxicated with love -- for you have tasted of the finest wine.
