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)

Scripture Of The Day – March 11, 2022

Posted 03-11-2022 at 12:43 PM by Albert Finch (How Do I Advance My Spiritual Life?)

In Psalm 81:10 God challenges us with these words, "Open wide your mouth and I will fill it!"

What will God fill our mouths with? This is not about God giving you food. The Hebrew text actually reads, "Open wide your mouth and I will FULFILL it!"

God wants to FILL our mouths with HIS Word then FULFILL it when we speak it forth!

In this way we co-labor with God. Under the New Covenant He furnishes His Word in scripture and then we...

Magnify The Lord

Posted 03-10-2022 at 12:18 AM by Albert Finch (How Do I Advance My Spiritual Life?)

"According to my earnest expectation and my hope, that in nothing I shall be ashamed, but that with all boldness, as always, so now also Christ shall be magnified in my body, whether it be by life, or by death. " - Philippians 1:20

The enemy sometimes attempts to MAGNIFY fear over health issues through his lies. The enemy is attempting to MAGNIFY FEAR with his lies and false decrees to keep Believers bound. But the truth is, there is a key to break these health issues...

Taking The Limitations Off

Posted 03-08-2022 at 11:41 PM by Albert Finch (How Do I Advance My Spiritual Life?)

According to 1 John 3:8, Jesus had a purpose. His purpose was to "...destroy the works of the devil." The word purpose in Greek is the word "tupos" (pronounced too-pos) and it means "model or imitation." When He was destroying the works of the devil, He became a model for us to imitate.

When we are carrying out our calling in Christ, we are imitating God. In fact, this is one of the ways that we are able to give Him glory – by imitating Him!

Scripture Of The Day - March 7, 2022

Posted 03-07-2022 at 11:36 AM by Albert Finch (How Do I Advance My Spiritual Life?)

"Do not be deceived, my beloved brethren. Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning." (James1:15,17)

God loves givers but we also have to learn how to receive. Many people have a hard time receiving from God because of self-sufficiency and pride. We want to receive and value the gifts that He freely gives. It does not matter what it is. It can be salvation, the Holy...

Scripture Of The Day - March 6, 2022

Posted 03-06-2022 at 03:43 PM by Albert Finch (How Do I Advance My Spiritual Life?)

"But by His doing you are in Christ Jesus, who became to us wisdom from God, and righteousness and sanctification, and redemption," - 1 Corinthians 1:3

We want us to speak the decrees and commands that bring life. Guard your words. Begin to speak light and speak life into your circumstances and every aspect of life.

God uses circumstances to show us wrong mindsets so that we see the need to adjust. Understanding the mind of Christ is knowing how Jesus walked...
