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 Resurrection Authority

Posted 03-31-2024 at 09:11 AM by Albert Finch (How Do I Advance My Spiritual Life?)

"I am the resurrection and the life. Anyone who believes in Me will live, even after dying. Everyone who lives in Me and believes in Me will never ever die..." John 11:25-26

Jesus, the Son of God, came to manifest what He is and has always been – Resurrection and Life! Jesus did not come to earth to teach about a theory; He was and is forever the resurrection life for everyone who receives Him. Jesus Christ did not only raise the dead, like He did Lazarus, but brought...

March 31, 2024 - Exhortation

We are continually reaping a harvest from what we have sown. Sow the goodness of God into the lives of others through your Christ calling and reap a harvest of God's favor.

Whatever your life looks like right now—wherever you are in your faith walk—you can begin anew. Recognize your current spiritual output, release it to the Lord (repenting as necessary and breaking any word curses you have spoken), and speak life into every famished place the Spirit of the Lord brings to your...

His Ultimate Prize

Posted 03-30-2024 at 09:56 AM by Albert Finch (How Do I Advance My Spiritual Life?)

"Therefore, since the children share in flesh and blood, He Himself likewise also partook of the same, that through death He might render powerless him who had the power of death, that is, the devil. and might free those who through fear of death were subject to slavery all their lives." - Hebrews 2:14,15

At the Cross, Jesus broke the power of sin. When He was resurrected, He destroyed the power of death.

"Having canceled out the certificate of debt...

The process you may be going through right now, where God is leading you into something so new that your emotions have felt like a mess. It's where you wake up feeling lost and displaced. It's where you feel moments of being numb and can feel a void of sorts in your soul. It's where you feel such a discontent for what you were once doing, the language you once used, and the vision you once had. You feel like your appetite and affections have somehow shifted overnight, leaving you reeling.

Stepping Into His Anoining And Glory

Posted 03-29-2024 at 07:46 PM by Albert Finch (How Do I Advance My Spiritual Life?)

"Go...and see what the land is, and whether the people who dwell in it are strong or weak, whether they are few or many, and whether the land that they dwell in is good or bad, and whether the cities that they dwell are camps or strongholds, and whether the land is rich or poor, and whether there are trees in it or not. Be of good courage and bring some of the fruit of the land." - Numbers 13:18-20

Caleb was a giant slayer in his spirit before he physically conquered any...
