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)

Understanding Our Right Standing With God

Posted 03-11-2024 at 01:19 AM by Albert Finch (How Do I Advance My Spiritual Life?)

Many think righteousness equates to following the law, but this is a religious mindset. Living under the Law leads to death. If you live by the Law, the Law will require righteousness from you that you are unable to fulfill on your own, putting you in a position where you will be judged by that Law, and the Law is an unforgiving judge. But the good news is that Jesus came so that you may have life and life more abundantly.

Romans 8:3-5 tells us that God sent His only Son in the form...
