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)

"Now it is God who makes both us and you stand firm in Christ. He anointed us...and put his Spirit in our hearts..." - 2 Corinthians 1:21,22

"That He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with might through His Spirit in the inner man....that you may be filled with all the fullness of God." - Ephesians 3:16,19

To be effective we must minister according to His energy, or His power in our lives.

Together In Christ

Posted 09-23-2023 at 09:18 AM by Albert Finch (How Do I Advance My Spiritual Life?)

We all need to stay in the House of the Lord. None of us lives unto ourselves alone. We must be together in battle, and continually encouraged, trained, and nurtured in the context of OUR IDENTITY IN CHRIST IN God's House.

"It's me and Jesus" has never been God's plan. The Bible uses the word "TOGETHER" 484 times:

"...let us exalt His name TOGETHER."
• "Gather My saints TOGETHER unto Me..."
• "We took sweet...

September 23, 2023 - Exhortation

Posted 09-23-2023 at 02:02 AM by Albert Finch (How Do I Advance My Spiritual Life?)

God's heart is beating for the harvest and souls and the equipping of the saints. The Holy Spirit is aligning us to what His heart burns -- for, our hearts will burn for too. God is releasing swift acceleration upon the Church Body and turning things around. God is refocusing your vision to see with greater clarity and aligning you to the Christ mandate for this hour. God is releasing breakthrough over your Christ calling.

When God-change is happening, your decrees are imperative....
