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)

We can focus on the loss the shaking has caused or, we can see it as a precursor for even greater grace revealed.
Rise up with expectation, not away from your wilderness but because of it. In God's upside-down Kingdom, the wilderness of shaking is actually chosen fertile ground for next season's multiplication!...

Behold The Lamb In His Glory

Posted 05-23-2024 at 10:52 AM by Albert Finch (How Do I Advance My Spiritual Life?)

These are days of DESTINY, filled with wonder and excitement. The awe of God is returning to the people of God, filling the hearts of God's people with great expectation.

Something new and revolutionary is at the door—but the question is not what is at the door, but Who.

POINTING TO HIS PRESENCE

We must come out of old mindsets and into the mind of Christ where the blazing glory of His glorious presence literally rests upon us as we minister first unto...
