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)

Partner with Him, that He may use you as a vessel of awakening to those who sit in darkness. Like Esther, your time is now. It is not time for you to go undercover and hide. Come out! It is the time for you to "arise and shine."

You are the elect of God. You have been called for such a time as this. One misstep does not define who He has called you to be. Get up!"

Purify yourself for the place where He is taking you. You must be willing to confront and...
