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)

Revealing The Inaccessible

Posted 07-22-2021 at 10:31 PM by Albert Finch (How Do I Advance My Spiritual Life?)

In Jeremiah 33:3, we are told to call to Him so He can reveal things that were once hidden but now have become accessible. In 2021 He wants to bring restoration and establish an understanding of His purpose and plan in our lives—not man’s plan but His plan. All we need to do is ask. New wells are breaking open -- ways and means of discipling the spiritually stagnant into their Christ identity.

Psalm 33:10–12: "The Lord brings the counsel of the nations to nothing; He makes...

Meditations On Jesus - July 22, 2021

Posted 07-22-2021 at 12:25 PM by Albert Finch (How Do I Advance My Spiritual Life?)

The rabble could not disturb Him; death could not corrupt Him; hell could not keep Him; and the grave could not contain Him!

Gravitation could not restrain Him, and God has highly exalted Him and given Him a Name above every name, and at His Name every knee shall bow and every tongue shall confess that He is Lord of all.

He led captivity captive and gave gifts to men; He brought a stream out of a rock, and fed the people in the wilderness; He fed 5000 with two loaves...

Seeking Communion – July 22, 2021

Posted 07-22-2021 at 12:45 AM by Albert Finch (How Do I Advance My Spiritual Life?)

God's glory is all around us. We often do not take the time to witness God's glory and meditate on his holiness.

We are consumed with what we want and what is wrong, we don't take time just to cry out to the Lord and appreciate His glory. We should praise God for what he has already done!

Isaiah 6:3 - "And one cried unto another, and said, Holy, holy, holy, is the Lord of hosts: the whole earth is full of his glory."


If we cry out one to another...
