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 5, 2022

Posted 03-05-2022 at 10:28 AM by Albert Finch (How Do I Advance My Spiritual Life?)

"Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world–the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—is not of the Father but is of the world. And the world is passing away, and the lust of it; but he who does the will of God abides forever." (1 John 2:15-17)

Scripture Of The Day – March 4, 2022

Posted 03-04-2022 at 04:40 PM by Albert Finch (How Do I Advance My Spiritual Life?)

"For our God is a consuming fire." - Hebrews 12:29

God's voice dwells in the midst of the fire! Fire consumes the sacrifice, and in Romans 12:1-2 we are told to surrender our bodies and renew our minds. As we lay our flesh upon His altar, we are consumed!

Mark 9:49 - "For everyone will be salted with fire.
"

We are called to burn for Him and be voices of awakening. The Father desires to set regions ablaze with holy fire, but it will...

Seeking Your Breakthrough

Posted 03-04-2022 at 12:42 AM by Albert Finch (How Do I Advance My Spiritual Life?)

Your life of devotion before God in prayer opens up the heavens and releases revelation into your life. Revelation and information are not equal or the same. You can have a lot of good Biblical information but it may seem lifeless to you because it is simply a ritual.

The good news is your information can become revelation, light, and transformation as you devote yourself to God in worship and prayer. You must have spiritual hunger, a strong prayer life, as well as time affirming...

Scripture Of The Day – March 3, 2022

Posted 03-03-2022 at 02:39 PM by Albert Finch (How Do I Advance My Spiritual Life?)

"So may all Your enemies perish, Lord! But may all who love You be like the sun when it rises in its strength..." - Judges 5:31

There is a rising coming for the Body of Christ – a rising within Him, in His ways and in His love to be free in Christ. We are rising up in the glory of the Son. A "rising" can also mean a revolution or revolt – it is time to rise up and push back the powers of darkness trying to encroach and violate our lives!

Revival Begins Within

Posted 03-03-2022 at 12:25 AM by Albert Finch (How Do I Advance My Spiritual Life?)

2 Corinthians 3:18 - "But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as from the Lord, the Spirit."

Revival begins within. Reformation starts with us allowing Him to re-form us into a greater expression of Him. As we allow the move of God – this process unto the promise, this purification and refinement, this loving discipline of the Lord -- we will see greater manifestations...
