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)

Connected To Eternity

Posted 02-04-2024 at 12:10 PM by Albert Finch (How Do I Advance My Spiritual Life?)

Ecclesiastes 3:11 - "He has also set eternity in the hearts of men."

There is something within you that is being called by eternity. We live in time and space but time and space are connected to eternity, and God has put something into your heart that calls the unseen into the seen.

The vision God has put in your heart is "a piece of eternity" that He gave you to deliver in time and space -- that is, on the earth during your lifetime. God lives in...

Internalizing The Faith Of God - Meditations

Posted 02-04-2024 at 10:23 AM by Albert Finch (How Do I Advance My Spiritual Life?)

For those who are faint in their heart be of good cheer for the Lord has overcome all that surrounds you. Remember He said, "lo, I am with you always, even until the end of time." (Matthew 28:20)

Draw Him into the situation that is trying to draw you into the valley of fear. As you draw Him in His faith within you (Galatians 2:20), rises up, fear will bow down and diminish.

Let the faith that He has given you -- let that gift be opened to a greater degree....
