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)

The ascended life – living from Heaven – dwelling in that sense of His presence and living from there releases revelation into your life.

Feel His cross – feel His blood – It is real. It is! Declare that you have spiritual hunger, a strong prayer life (Hebrews 10:19), as well as aggressive action affirming and meditating on the Word to have the Holy Spirit move you into higher and more efficient states of mind.

It's time for the door of more revelation and spiritual...

"What no eye has seen, nor ear heard, nor the heart of man imagined, what God has prepared for those who love Him" - (1 Corinthians 2:9).

God wants to work through you in ways that would confound your mind if you saw them in advance. His plans for us are beyond anything we could imagine. He created us to fill an important role in His great plan for the ages; that of revealing Himself to creation through creation.

The weight of the glory God wants to share...

Rescued From Ourselves

Posted 02-10-2024 at 08:58 AM by Albert Finch (How Do I Advance My Spiritual Life?)

God came down in the form of a man, Jesus, to rescue us from OURSELVES. Jesus did not come down to start a religion, but to equip man to advance His Kingdom throughout the earth. To do this He had to deliver mankind from the curse of sin, so guilt and condemnation would not hinder the Believer in advancing His Kingdom (Romans 8:1,2).

John 14:10 -- "The words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself; but the Father that dwelleth in me, He doeth the works."
