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)

Seeking Communion – July 22, 2021

Posted 07-22-2021 at 12:45 AM by Albert Finch


God's glory is all around us. We often do not take the time to witness God's glory and meditate on his holiness.

We are consumed with what we want and what is wrong, we don't take time just to cry out to the Lord and appreciate His glory. We should praise God for what he has already done!

Isaiah 6:3 - "And one cried unto another, and said, Holy, holy, holy, is the Lord of hosts: the whole earth is full of his glory."


If we cry out one to another saying Holy, holy, holy, is the Lord of hosts: the whole earth is full of his glory.

We must continually cry out Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty, which was, and is, and is to come (Revelation 4:8).

We must humble ourselves before the Lord remembering who we are in Christ and who God is. We are servants in need of a Savior and God is Holy and the whole earth is full of His glory. What have we accomplished without His breath of life and His mercy?

Psalms 72:18-19 - Blessed be the LORD, the God of Israel, who alone does wondrous things. Blessed be his glorious name forever; may the whole earth be filled with his glory!


Amen and Amen!
