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)

Roll Away The Stone

Posted 05-14-2021 at 04:34 PM by Albert Finch

Ecclesiastes tells us, "To everything there is a season, a time for every purpose under Heaven..."

There is a TIME or SEASON for everything. You will go through SEASONS spiritually; times of war, sadness, hatred, mourning, etc., but you have got to end those times and move on to the next SEASON, to flourish spiritually. There are times for everything and we know He has made everything beautiful in its time.

Jesus said, "My soul is vexed." It proves that even when you are struggling, and it is manifesting in your soul to such a degree that you are perplexed, it could be that you are about to embark upon a journey of glory and prosperity in every way...so don't take it as a bad sign. Roll away the stone!! There would have never been a miracle of resurrection if they had not rolled the stone away.

You may be buried in your grief, or pain, but until you roll the stone away, you can't experience RESURRECTION power!

It's time to roll away the stone in your life!
