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)

Engaging Relationally

Posted 09-27-2021 at 11:49 PM by Albert Finch (How Do I Advance My Spiritual Life?)

Psalm 91:1 -- "He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty."

Jesus lived a life of prayer, and when He needed dedicated prayer time He would send crowds and, most likely, potential resources away so that He could be with the Father. As a result, He would not move, speak, or do anything that the Father did not ask Him to do.

Our talking and listening to the Father should be a continuum...

Responsibility To Walk In His Authority

Posted 09-27-2021 at 02:50 AM by Albert Finch (How Do I Advance My Spiritual Life?)

Genesis 1:26 - "Let Us make man in Our image, to be like Ourselves; let man have dominion...over all the earth."

It has always been the Lord's intent to have a "people" who would have dominion authority on the earth.

The word "dominion" (Hebrew - radah) means to prevail, rule, reign, to tread down."

After God formed man, He blessed him and told him to fill the earth, subdue it, and have dominion over all of creation...
