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 - March 6, 2022

Posted 03-06-2022 at 03:43 PM by Albert Finch


"But by His doing you are in Christ Jesus, who became to us wisdom from God, and righteousness and sanctification, and redemption," - 1 Corinthians 1:3

We want us to speak the decrees and commands that bring life. Guard your words. Begin to speak light and speak life into your circumstances and every aspect of life.

God uses circumstances to show us wrong mindsets so that we see the need to adjust. Understanding the mind of Christ is knowing how Jesus walked so that we can do the same. There are many facets in how the mind of Christ was expressed. One is how Jesus walked in authority and power. He did things with a command. We need to have that command in our lives.

To have the mind of Christ in regards to authority is important for us today. In Luke 10:19 Jesus says, "Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you."

"... [P]ut on the new man who is renewed in knowledge according to the image of Him who created him." (Colossians 3:10)

In the beginning God spoke, "Let there be light," and there was light. We have that same power. We have that same authority. He wants us to realize who we are – that we are created in His image. The words that we speak are powerful. Life and death is in the power of the tongue so we want to speak life.

"Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruit." (Proverbs 18:21)

We want us to speak the decrees and commands that bring life. Guard your words. Begin to speak light and speak life into your circumstances and every aspect of life.
