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)

As you become like a child again and learn to live from your heavenly seat at the right hand of Jesus you will be part of the greatest move of His Spirit the earth has ever experienced!


He is calling you to THE REALM OF THE IMPOSSIBLE, where the things you speak materialize before your eyes, because you speak HIS WORD by which everything was created – where your imagination and dreams have no limits!

As you are carrying out your Christ calling, His words dwell...

Posted 01-30-2024 at 09:45 AM by Albert Finch (How Do I Advance My Spiritual Life?)

Romans 10:10 - "For with the heart man beleiveth unto righteousness......."

Romans 5:17 - "For if by one man's offence death reigned by one; much more they which receive abundance of grace and the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ."
