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 – January 28, 2022

Posted 01-28-2022 at 05:20 PM by Albert Finch

"One thing I have asked from the Lord, that I shall seek: That I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, To behold the beauty of the Lord And to meditate in His temple." - Psalm 27:4

Through the Christ conscious believer, God will release Heaven into earth. Will you respond or react? Prune your negative mindset and begin responding in faith to Christ's vision. A new vision awaits you!

Holy Spirit continues to send you apostolic winds to realign you for His Kingdom PURPOSE. These winds are here to challenge your identity.

Some today have a false identity and as a result, they can't find their way. It is also true that some within the Church have found their identity (or they have tried to find their identity) in pastors, programs, function, and ministry. The co-dependency between ministers and sheep has created identification dysfunction. You're so busy with "things" you haven't found the "One Thing" (see Psalm 27:4).

Your distinction can only be found in Christ. Realignment of your Christ identity is essential in order for you to fulfill His CALLING on your life. Be ready, forsake your former identity and go after Him and you will be found in Him (see Philippians 3:9). As you go after Him you will take on His character. In Him, I live and move, and have my being (see Acts 17:28).

The winds of apostolic (equipping and sending out) change continue to blow in your life. These winds are blowing against the paradigms that keep you from moving forward into God’s purpose for your life. Think differently! (Repent is from the Greek word, "metanoia" which means to ) When John the Baptist and Jesus said, "Repent for the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand," they were saying, "Think differently because the Kingdom of Heaven is here."

Watch as paradigm shifts begin to take place. THINK DIFFERENTLY! Heaven will open up over you and you will begin to bear fruit and move from glory to glory as you advance His Kingdom in the earth.
