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)

Becoming Pure

Posted 02-03-2022 at 02:33 AM by Albert Finch

The PURITY God requires from us is impossible for us. We must allow Him to produce it in us. PURITY produces in us godliness when we consistently walk in the Spirit.

"...beholding the glory of the Lord, are being changed into His likeness ....." - 2 Corinthians 3:18


Usually, people think of temptation as some big dark sin rather than the SUBTLE LURING INTO A DIFFERENT DIRECTION. For those who don't know God, these thoughts are normal life; but for those who have given their lives to God, these kinds of thoughts shouldn't be a way of life but something attempting to come from the outside in.

We want thoughts that are inspired by the Holy Spirit because we are abiding in His Presence. As we have our conversation, our REPENTANCE, MEDITATION, AND DEVOTIONAL with God -- by His Word and truth -- then He has the authority over our lives. Our time is valuable and we want to use that time as an opportunity to increase our spiritual momentum to dive deeper into the heart and PURPOSE of God for our life.


Knowing OUR CHRIST IDENTITY will strengthen the inner man and demolish satan's strongholds.

"For the weapons of our warfare are not worldly but have divine power to destroy strongholds." - 2 Corinthians 10:4

True Christianity sparks a flame in the human spirit. It ignites the heart with holy fervency for Jesus and a hunger to advance His Kingdom in the earth.
