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)

God has empowered us! We are anointed for action!

Our mission and mandate? Establishing the Kingdom!

We are chosen by Him and for Him!

"For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them." - Ephesians 2:10


I have a God-given purpose!

I was chosen by Almighty God in eternity past to live in the present.

Thought For The Day - August 22, 2021

Posted 08-22-2021 at 02:31 PM by Albert Finch (How Do I Advance My Spiritual Life?)

Because the truth sets you free, you will be truly free, and you will be unconcerned about what others may have to say. Let the truth free you from every wrong feeling and every confused thought.

Left to yourself you will always move toward nothingness; you easily fall to ruin; you are easily overcome, easily upset, easily weakened. Of yourself, you have nothing to be proud of, but many things ought to humble you, for you're weaker than you know.

Always yearn for...
