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)

Embracing The Mindset Of Restoration

Posted 03-18-2024 at 10:13 PM by Albert Finch (How Do I Advance My Spiritual Life?)

Ephesians 5:25-27 talks about a Church that has already been sanctified through being born again in Christ and is ready and presently equipped to carry out the Great Commission of discipling the nations thereby demolishing the Kingdom of darkness.

The worst "drug" many Christians are taking today is the drug of the wrong narrative. This wrong narrative says we are in the worst of days and that Jesus is coming any moment to rescue us out of the mess of these days.

Scripture Of The Day - March 18, 2024

Posted 03-18-2024 at 08:35 AM by Albert Finch (How Do I Advance My Spiritual Life?)

1 Corinthians 2:9 - "That is what the Scriptures mean when they say, 'No eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no mind has imagined what God has prepared for those who love Him.'"

He is lifting you up higher to see the new things that He has prepared and planned that are coming through for you and are now just ahead. The things you did not expect, the things you didn't see coming and the things you didn't know He could do, He is going to do.

It is time to step...
