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)

You may not feel like a person of divine Destiny when you wake up every day, but that's just your feelings. Your future is not rooted in how you feel, but in how you act.

You cannot fulfill your Destiny...

(Read Luke 9 & 1 Corinthians 1)


1 John 4:4 4You are from God, little children, and have overcome them; because greater is He who is in you than he who is in the world. (Peace does not come from extreme indifference, nor is it from becoming so spiritual that you fail to notice a problem. It is being so confident in God’s love that I know, regardless of the battle and the difficulties in my circumstances,...
