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)

"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)

"... Not by might, nor by power, but by My Spirit...' (Zechariah 4:6). He is blowing His breath, His resurrection life and power, over your life right now and causing you to ascend out of the ashes, and causing you to come up higher. He is CAUSING YOUR COMEBACK NOW.

You have been in a battle that you have felt has almost knocked you down completely, but no weapon formed against you shall prosper, and NOW is the time for you to arise. For He is bringing you forth by HIS POWER,...
