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)

Power Study A36 - Notes

Posted 12-16-2023 at 07:50 PM by Albert Finch

What are the avenues that give satan access to our lives?
Answer: The things we say, the things we think, and the ungodly choices we make.

If someone were asking you," How are you going to live your life today/" -- What would you say?
Answer: Declaration - "I am going to live my life from an eternal perspective!!"
What is the primary way that we live from an eternal perspective? Answer: By walking in the Spirit as we go throughout the day. Jesus used downtime during the day to have communion with the Father -- we can do the same.

We can do the following as we walk in the Spirit:

Lift your consciousness up to eternity by meditating on the love of Jesus flowing into your heart and back to Jesus -- over and over again -- eventually flowing into the lives of those you are endeavoring to help with their spiritual life
Meditating or affirming God's Word (Psalms) back to Him. This is a form of prayer (when you meditate or affirm God's Word back to Him.

Luke 14:28,29 - "Count the cost…whether he has enough resources to complete it".

Jesus is referring to what you need to do if you are building a building. The building we are building is the Kingdom of God. We must have understanding of our Christ calling and a strategy if we want to bear fruit that remains for His Kingdom.
