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)

This is a season to flow with God, be bold in our faith, and expect to see the miraculous power of God work in and through our lives – advancing His Kingdom from glory to glory!

The gift we fail to appreciate is time. It is wisdom to number our days (Psalm 90), for we have only a certain allotment of time to fulfill our Christ calling. Yet many squander their days with meaningless distractions. Yes, all things are lawful but not all things are profitable (1 Corinthians 5:12)....
