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)

Take some time to ask God to help you...

One Spirit With Him

Posted 05-11-2024 at 11:22 AM by Albert Finch (How Do I Advance My Spiritual Life?)

Consider the difference between Christ and all other things -- as thus, all other things are vanities, but Christ is a real, solid substantial, glorious thing; all other things are temporary, fading things, but Christ is an enduring substance. All other things are thorns, vexations of spirit, but Christ is full of joy and comfort, a most ravishing object, all composed of loves, or altogether lovely. Who would make it his business to fill his coffers with pebbles, when he may have pearls, or gold,...

Walking With Confidence In Christ

Posted 05-11-2024 at 12:53 AM by Albert Finch (How Do I Advance My Spiritual Life?)

We break out of the mold of past insecurities (our house built upon the sand), and an entering into the security of being seated with Jesus in His Throne, at the right hand of all power and authority (our house built upon a rock). Here He lifts us from our place of discouragement and vacillation into an overcoming victory in His presence. Get ready for God to move you out of the confines and limitations of what you have experienced in the past.

Knowing that we are to seek first His...
