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 – October 31, 2021

Posted 10-31-2021 at 11:19 AM by Albert Finch (How Do I Advance My Spiritual Life?)

Mark 5:22-24 - "And, behold, there cometh one of the rulers of the synagogue, Jairus by name; and when he saw Jesus, he fell at His feet, and besought Him greatly, saying, My little daughter lieth at the point of death: I pray thee, come and lay thy hands on her, that she may be healed; and she shall live. And Jesus went with Him."

JAIRUS IS SO DOGGEDLY DETERMINED TO GET TO JESUS THAT HE FIGHTS HIS WAY THROUGH THE CROWD AND CLEARS OUT ENOUGH ROOM TO FALL...

Feed My Sheep

Posted 10-30-2021 at 11:50 PM by Albert Finch (How Do I Advance My Spiritual Life?)

"Simon Peter answered, 'You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.' And Jesus said to him, 'Blessed are you, Simon Barjona, because flesh and blood did not reveal this to you, but My Father who is in Heaven. I also say to you that you are Peter, and upon this rock I will build My church; and the gates of Hades will not overpower it. I will give you the keys of the Kingdom of Heaven; and whatever you bind on earth shall have been bound in Heaven, and whatever you loose on earth shall have...

Thought For The Day - October 30 2021

Posted 10-30-2021 at 11:15 AM by Albert Finch (How Do I Advance My Spiritual Life?)

When your perception narrows so that problems or details fill your consciousness, you feel empty and incomplete.

Learn to look steadily at Him in all your moments and all your circumstances. Though the world is unstable and in flux, you can experience continuity through your uninterrupted awareness of His Presence.

Fix your gaze on what is unseen, even as the visible world parades before your eyes.

2 Corinthians 4:18 – “So we fix our eyes not on...

Replacing The Grasshopper Mentality

Posted 10-29-2021 at 11:41 PM by Albert Finch (How Do I Advance My Spiritual Life?)

"It shall be, in regard to their inheritance, that I am thieir inheritance. You shall give them no possession in Israel, for I am their possession." - Ezekiel 44:28

Our inheritance is the Lord Himself. The Lord is desperately hungry for us to possess Him. Did you know the Lord wants you to possess Him? -- that you would be so filled with the divine nature, come into such a holy union with Him. that it's as if Jesus has clothed Himself with your flesh.

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...
