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)

1John 2:27 “But the anointing that you received from Him abides in you..."

We want a pure river flowing from our hearts. John, the revelator, spoke of a pure river, pure as crystal (Revelation 22:1). He spoke of how the river was flowing out of the throne and out of the Lamb.

The anointing flows from the heart of man, the anointing of God flows from you like a river. Jesus even told us that rivers of living water would flow from our innermost being (John 7:38)...

Moving Into The Empowered Life

Posted 09-21-2020 at 06:12 PM by Albert Finch (How Do I Advance My Spiritual Life?)

The Kingdom of God is not a matter of mere words but of an empowered life, and God is calling forth a company of overcomers. These overcomers will go into the world and testify to the goodness of God, attracting non-believers to Christ-like moths to a flame.

IT IS TIME TO ARISE AND SHINE

We are the temple of the living God and the Holy Spirit dwells within us. God is calling us to rise from circumstances that have kept us, and be radiant with the glory of the Lord....

Genesis 12:1 - "The LORD had said to Abram, "Go from your country, your people and your father's household to the land I will show you."

God is calling us to boldly follow Him into the unknown. As we do, we will be brought into a whole new place! The very things that many Believers have been crying out and contending for (even for years at a time) are beginning to take shape.

Though transition can feel shaky, uncomfortable, and even messy at times, the...

Separating Ourselves Apart

Posted 09-20-2020 at 07:19 PM by Albert Finch (How Do I Advance My Spiritual Life?)

In Joshua's day, before crossing the Jordan River and moving into their inheritance, God said to the people, "Consecrate yourselves, for tomorrow the Lord will do wonders among you" (Joshua 3:5).

This is an exhortation for us today!

DRAW NEAR TO GOD

The word consecrate, in Hebrew, is actually a relational term. "Qadash" means to separate or set yourself apart unto God. God's heart isn't, "Clean up your act so I can restore and...

Ephesians 4:24 - "and to put on the new self, created after the likeness of God in true righteousness and holiness."

Avoid a negative and introverted attitude caused by an overemphasis on inner healing. Instead, focus on your new nature in Christ. A spiritual consciousness of your new nature will always give you a truer, more real and trustworthy evaluation than that provided by your own weaknesses, fears, anger, memories, etc.—not to mention the accuser of the brethren!...
