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)

Healing Breakthroughs

"And these signs shall follow them that believe;.....they shall lay hands on the sick and they shall recover." - Mark 16:17,18

One of the ways the enemy tries to ravage and destroy the Body of Christ is through sicknesses and infirmities..

Believers are rising from a place of brokenness, healed in body and mind, as they rise up to release His glory on the earth in these last days.

RENEWAL OF FAITH AND STRENGTH IN THE HEART OF THE BELIEVER...

Scripture Of The Day - May 30, 2024

Posted 05-30-2024 at 10:52 AM by Albert Finch (How Do I Advance My Spiritual Life?)

Ephesians 2:17-19 - “And He came and preached peace to you who were far away, and peace to those who were near; for through Him we both have our access in one Spirit to the Father. So then you are no longer strangers and aliens, but you are fellow citizens with the saints, and are of God's household."

In 2 Corinthians 13:5 we are exhorted to "test yourselves to see if you are in the faith; examine yourselves!"

One of the primary tests...

Daily Meditations And Affirmations - May 30, 2024

Posted 05-30-2024 at 12:06 AM by Albert Finch (How Do I Advance My Spiritual Life?)

"I will very gladly spend and be spent for your souls." - 2 Corinthians 12:15

Once "the love of God has been poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit," we deliberately begin to identify ourselves with Jesus Christ's interests and purposes in others lives (Romans 5:5). And Jesus has an interest in every Believer being discipled into understanding their Christ identity so they can bear fruit that remains for His advancing Kingdom through their Christ calling....

"You open Your hand and satisfy the desire of every living thing...And, He will fulfill the desire of those who fear Him." - Psalm 145:16, 19 NKJV.

You can trust the Lord God.

LAUNCH INTO THE DEEP

In Luke 5, we read the story of Simon Peter fishing. He had been up all night fishing and had caught nothing. NOTHING! He, a professional fisherman, had worked all night for nothing. His friends were into fishing. He lived in a fishing village....

May 28, 2024 - Exhortation

Posted 05-28-2024 at 10:13 PM by Albert Finch (How Do I Advance My Spiritual Life?)

A new hunger is growing in us in 2024. It is essential to throw away the things that seemed okay to us in our last season: old thought processes, busyness for the sake of busyness, and meaningless things that consume our time.

Some things we have allowed in our lives cannot stay with us because of where we are going. Many are realizing it is meaningless—all is meaningless—except for God’s purpose for our life! The only thing that matters is God and advancing His Kingdom in...
