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)

Posted 11-14-2023 at 05:21 AM by Albert Finch

Bell ringers of hope, arise! Flood the earth with your song! Shake the deathbeds with visions of the dawn, and those in slumber with your shouts of joy! For you are called in this hour to remind the Church that her greatest days are here NOW. You are called to shatter demonic footholds with the fire of your Christ calling escalating to a greater glory that is right now filling the earth.

Right NOW God is calling you forth from the circumstances that have knocked the wind out of you and left you lifeless. You are breathing but you are lifeless. Hear the Spirit of the Lord declaring to you today, "Come forth!" -- see in your spirit a sudden surge of God's power, answers to prayer, and an outpouring of His Spirit. The unfolding of His plans for your next assignment is at hand as you keep praying, keep standing, and keep contending.

"Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his might." - Ephesians 6:10
