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)

He is calling to those whose hearts have faced the barrenness of winter to come with Him into the new season of healing and warmth, the place where blossoms appear once again. He will call to you to come out of the "winter of your soul" so that your heart does not become frozen and ceases to bear fruit for His Kingdom. Come to where He feeds...

Becoming More Extreme

Posted 12-16-2023 at 01:04 PM by Albert Finch (How Do I Advance My Spiritual Life?)

How much time do you spend in God's Word compared to taking in other perspectives from television, movies, books, magazines, and the Internet?
