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)

The gospel doctrine of the Cross, that is, of dying to self is the only way to life in God. The true Christian life, which declares our oneness with Christ, is a life of sacrifice.(sacrificing our time and focuses on helping others with their spiritual life so they can be equipped for Kingdom service.

"Taking up our cross"
means that we 'die' to the right to do as we please, and surrender 'unconditionally' to the Lordship of Jesus and our calling in Christ. This requires ongoing action and a life of moving from glory to glory as we bear fruit that remains for His advancing Kingdom.

Romans 2:8 - "Jesus will pour our His anger and wrath on those who live for themselves."

The last command of Jesus while on earth says "Go!" That's why we often see the anointing increase as we GO MOVING with the cloud.
