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)

Getting in touch with our destiny in Christ can have the single most powerful impact on our own life after coming to know the Lord and being born again. All Christians are called to be witnesses, but we also have a calling in His Body that is more specific than that.

The main factors that will lead to a revelation of our destiny and being prepared for it are the following:

A. Resolving to do the Lord's will as the chief pursuit of our lives.

1. All Christians...

Sense of Devine Destiny

Posted 04-09-2009 at 10:28 PM by Albert Finch (How Do I Advance My Spiritual Life?)

Ephesians 5:14-18 - "Wake up from your sleep, and arise from the dead, And Christ shall shine upon you. Live life with a due sense of responsibility, not as men who do not know the meaning of life but as those who do. Make the best use of your time, despite all the evils of these days. Don't be vague but grasp firmly what you know to be the will of the Lord."

As believers, we are instructed to live our daily lives with a sense of ur unique devine destiny supported by goals...

Discipling vs. Counseling

Posted 04-07-2009 at 12:34 PM by Albert Finch (How Do I Advance My Spiritual Life?)

Some people that attend church are looking for "Christian Counseling" but what would be more beneficial in most circumstances would be discipleship equipping. That would involve focusing on their spiritual condition rather than their personal problems.
