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)

The Abundant Life In Christ

Posted 03-05-2024 at 08:02 PM by Albert Finch (How Do I Advance My Spiritual Life?)

John 10:10 - "The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life and have it abundantly."

He is working deep in your heart, He is working and rewiring your mind as you feast on His scriptures, and He is strengthening you for what is ahead. He is bringing you further into the abundant life that you have in fulfilling His purpose for your life (your Christ calling).

1 Corinthians 2:9 - "But, as it is written, 'What no eye...

Transferable Tangible Glory

Posted 03-05-2024 at 10:34 AM by Albert Finch (How Do I Advance My Spiritual Life?)

"And do not be drunk with wine, in which is dissipation; but be filled with the Spirit, speaking to one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord, giving thanks always for all things to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, submitting to one another in the fear of God." - Ephesians 5:18-21

When God floods our lives there is an overflow that passes from one person to another. Religion and bad teaching...

Embracing Spiritual Hunger

Posted 03-05-2024 at 09:37 AM by Albert Finch (How Do I Advance My Spiritual Life?)

"Now there is in Jerusalem by the sheep gate a pool, which is called in Hebrew Bethesda, having five porticoes. In these lay a multitude of those who were sick, blind, lame, and withered, waiting for the moving of the waters; for an angel of the Lord went down at certain seasons into the pool and stirred up the water; whoever then first, after the stirring up of the water, stepped in was made well from whatever disease with which he was afflicted.

March 5, 2024 - Exhortation

Come out of hiding! Break free from weariness! Stand in your place of battle! God is leading you on the fast track because the time of acceleration is here.

Weariness and hopelessness are breaking off of you. It will be as a rebirth. You will stand in your place of battle and rejoice at the overturn of the enemy's plots. Don't be afraid; He is with you and will fight for you.
You are coming out from under the weight of heaviness and weariness and tapping into the easy yoke...
