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)

Receiving His Breath

Posted 07-09-2021 at 08:24 PM by Albert Finch (How Do I Advance My Spiritual Life?)

John 20: 21-22 "So Jesus said to them again, 'Peace to you! As the Father has sent Me, I also send you.' And when He had said this, He breathed on them, and said to them, 'Receive the Holy Spirit.'"

Many believers are searching as if they lost their spiritual reception and they need a fresh breath from God.

Job 33:4 "The Spirit of God has made me, and the breath of the Almighty gives me life."


In the New Testament, the word “breath”...

I love you, Lord God, and you make me strong. (Psalm 18:1)

Seeking Communion - July 9, 2021

Posted 07-09-2021 at 01:38 AM by Albert Finch (How Do I Advance My Spiritual Life?)

Revelation 22:1 - "Then the angel showed me the river of the water of life, as clear as crystal, flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb."


The Lord calls His vessels, those that are even empty; He calls them to come and drink of His Spirit, to come to be filled fresh, strong.
