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 More Extreme

Posted 12-16-2023 at 01:04 PM by Albert Finch


How much time do you spend in God's Word compared to taking in other perspectives from television, movies, books, magazines, and the Internet?

How will your life change as you become more extreme with your faith? Can you visualize how your relationship with the Father is changing?

WHAT DO I NEED TO DO?

Come to understand your Christ identity with a mindset of bearing fruit that remains for His Kingdom. Knowing that as you are to seek first His Kingdom, you enter His presence with joy and expectation.

Get ready for God to move you out of the confines and limitations of what you have experienced in the past as you consecrate yourself to and embrace your Christ calling.

As we lay down our own plans and yield completely to Him day by day, the Scriptures promise that we will receive power from on high to be witnesses "to the end of the earth."

God wants to resurrect things that have died in you. You may think that your window of occasion is past the time that anything good can happen, but remember we serve the God of the resurrection.

"Jesus said to her, 'I am the resurrection and the life....." - John 11:25
