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)

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY - September 2, 2021

Posted 09-02-2021 at 10:01 AM by Albert Finch


We must lie under the authority of every word of God, and we must continually affirm our oneness with Christ -- "walk in a manner worthy of the calling with which you have been called" (Ephesians 4:1)

We cannot honor God more than when we are "humbled at His feet to receive His word" (Deuteronomy 33:3) -- than when we renounce the manners of the world to become His "followers as dear children" (Ephesians 5:1) -- and then how should this but tend to the honor and glory of our God?

MEDITATION

We are to be continually taking ground for the Kingdom of God as we position ourselves in the place that He has called us to. As we continually experience His person our eyes are opened to see from His heavenly perspective.

If we choose not to heed the leading of the Spirit and become proactive in renewing our minds, it is possible that we will limit God's power and anointing from flowing through our lives because of un-renewed thinking patterns that we are still embracing.


You have the potential to believe impossibilities into possibilities.


"Everything is possible for him who believes." - Mark 9:23
