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 - July 31, 2021

Posted 07-31-2021 at 02:48 PM by Albert Finch (How Do I Advance My Spiritual Life?)

2 Corinthians 4:3,4 - “And even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing, in whose case the god of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelieving so that they might not see the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God."

Since God doesn’t save anyone against their will, does it really do any good to pray for people who consciously refuse to receive Jesus as Lord? YES IT DOES!

Unbelievers who have purposely...

Seeking Communion – July 31, 2021

Posted 07-30-2021 at 10:22 PM by Albert Finch (How Do I Advance My Spiritual Life?)

Many Believers live in fear of the powers of darkness. Many are plagued by the spirit of suicide and death, discouragement and depression, sickness, lack, poverty, and failure. Many are caught in the vicious cycle of defeat, circling around the valleys of despair and can't seem to find their way out.

Many have been oppressed by the enemy for a prolonged period of time. It's been many years and many seasons of great grief and loss. You've been under such a weight of the enemy you couldn't...

MEDITATIONS ON JESUS – July 30, 2021

Posted 07-30-2021 at 09:46 AM by Albert Finch (How Do I Advance My Spiritual Life?)

He is high and lifted up; He is the Bright and Morning Star, and the fairest of 10,000.

He is more precious than gold, and He's the glory and lifter of my head.

He is the righteous Judge; He is a refuge for the oppressed; and He doesn't forget the cry of the humble.

He himself bore my sicknesses, and he carried my pains; He was despised and rejected of men; and now He controls the destiny of the nations -- the kingdoms of this world are going to become

Thought for The Day - July 29, 2021

Posted 07-29-2021 at 11:29 AM by Albert Finch (How Do I Advance My Spiritual Life?)

Go to your meditations of Heaven, and keep there a while. The children of that Kingdom above, have no taste for trifles, and especially when they are employed in the affairs of the Kingdom. No more will a soul that is taking a survey of Heaven and heavenly things, fix his eyes on such poor things below. (Philippians 3:8)

MEDITATION:

"Feed My Sheep." - John 21:17

If I love my Lord I have to FEED HIS SHEEP. There...

Spiritual Victory Behind Enemy Lines

Posted 07-29-2021 at 01:42 AM by Albert Finch (How Do I Advance My Spiritual Life?)

Ephesians 6:12 -- "For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places."

The reality is that we're in battle. We're being prevailed against. Some of us are "losing" in the fight against sin and sickness, disease and death. Some of us are losing the battle for our kids to know Jesus. Some of us are battling...
