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)

Daily Meditations And Affirmations - MAY 6, 2024

Posted 05-06-2024 at 09:08 PM by Albert Finch (How Do I Advance My Spiritual Life?)

"I was not disobedient to the heavenly vision" - Acts 26:19.
"God was pleased to reveal His Son IN ME so that I might preach Him among the Gentiles." - Galatians 1:15,16


Paul was devoted to a Person, not to a cause,He was absolutely Jesus Christ and the advancing of His Kingdom over the entire earth.
When we are born again we become one with Christ and come to understand our Christ identity so that, through our Christ calling, we might preach Him...

May 6, 2024 - Exhortation

Posted 05-06-2024 at 12:28 AM by Albert Finch (How Do I Advance My Spiritual Life?)

"In those days I will pour out My Spirit even on My servants – men and women alike – and they will prophesy." (Acts 2:18 )

The Lord declares in Acts 2:18 that there is a very specific reason He pours out His Spirit on His people – so we will prophesy! God wants you speaking His truth in season and out of season like this, because the lost, hurting, broken, victimized, scared people of the world need to know there is an alternative to all that has failed and frustrated...
