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)

I am like a tree firmly planted by streams of water which yields its fruit in due season; my leaf does not wither and I prosper in whatever I do; because my delight is in You Lord Jesus. (Psalm1:2,3)

How blessed am I since I take refuge in Jesus. (Psalm 2:12)

My Lord, You are a shield about me -- my glory -- and the one who lifts my head. (Psalm 4:3)

The Lord sustains me -- He delivers me from the fear of people. (Psalm 4:5)

In peace...

Present your body as a living sacrifice. Even though you may not understand, do not lean to your own understanding. Cling to the work of His Cross, and let His Cross cling to you.

Let His finished work prosper you, heal you, position you, re-instate you, draw you with loving-kindness to Himself. Let His love come upon your heart as you bask and soak in it as you go throughout your day.

Be not lonely. Seek not isolation; seek stillness to listen for His voice. Present...
