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)

For the creation was subjected to futility, not willingly, but because of Him who subjected it, in hope that the creation itself also will be set free from its slavery to corruption into the freedom of the glory of the children of God." - Romans 8:19-21

He designed you, inside and out, to be a vessel. There is a measure of God's glory that has become your responsibility to release...

Change Is In The Air

Posted 03-06-2024 at 03:48 PM by Albert Finch (How Do I Advance My Spiritual Life?)

"The season has now changed, the bondage your barren winter has ended, and the season of hiding is over and gone, the rains have soaked the earth and left it bright with blossoming flowers. The season for pruning the vines has arrived. This new day of destiny breaking forth around you... the early signs of My purposes and plans are bursting forth, the budding vines of new life are now blooming everywhere; the fragrance of their flowers whispers: "THERE IS CHANGE IN THE AIR..."' -...

March 6, 2024 - Exhortation

Posted 03-06-2024 at 02:17 AM by Albert Finch (How Do I Advance My Spiritual Life?)

As you call on Jesus who understands the crushing weight of affliction, allow Him to break open your soul to receive His bread and wine once more. As you partake anew of Christ's sustaining comforts, know that you join that ancient fellowship between Abraham, Melchizedek and all others who found solace beneath His wings.

Even though you are scarred and weathered, you cling to this hope -- the anchor of Jesus' eternal priesthood stands firm and secure, tethering your soul when storms...
