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.

Jesus said, "Self-help is not help at all. Self-sacrifice is the way, to finding yourself, your true self. (Matthew 16:25)

Isaiah 43:19 - “Nothing compares to what I'm going to do with you says the Lord! Behold, I am going to do a brand-new thing with you personally. See, I've already begun to do it. Don't you see it?"

You are about to shift away from the spiritually old and routine, and into the spiritually brand new and exciting! -- wonderfully, powerfully, and permanently refined by God Himself. You didn't do anything wrong. You didn't sin, and you didn't miss God. You are being given...
