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)

Fleeing To The Power Of His Cross

Posted 12-17-2023 at 08:49 PM by Albert Finch


Proverbs 13:12 - "Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but when dreams come true, there is life and joy."

WITHOUT GOD HOPE IS REDUCED TO THE POWERLESS LEVEL OF FATE.

WHILE LIFE CAN TAKE PEOPLE FROM HOPE TO DISAPPOINTMENT THE GOD OF HOPE LEADS PEOPLE IN THE OTHER DIRECTION.
NO MATTER WHAT THE CIRCUMSTANCES LOOK LIKE FOR YOU, THE HEART OF GOD IS THAT YOUR DREAMS WILL COME TRUE.

Affirmations:

WHEN DISCOURAGEMENT STARTS TO SET IN I FOCUS ON GOD AND THE INTEGRITY OF WHAT HIS WORD PROMISES BELIEVERS.

I SPEAK WORDS THAT BRING HOPE TO OTHERS WHO ARE DISPLAYING GOD'S KINGDOM THROUGH THEIR CHRIST CALLING.

I LIVE MY LIFE WITH FORWARD EXPECTATION AND SEE THE LOVE OF CHRIST IN MY HEART MANIFESTED IN THE SPIRITUAL LIVES OF OTHERS.



Hebrews 4:16 - "Let us therefore draw near with confidence to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and may find grace to help in time of need."

The Holy Spirit was sent to convict us of sin, and He will point out our sin.
The remedy is to repent. Repentance is not just turning away from the sin into the heavenly Christ example, but it is turning to your Christ calling as you continue to bear fruit that remains for His Kingdom.


We must turn to the Lord, fleeing to the power of His cross, beholding His glory and nature. Then we will be changed.


He INCREASES in us as we behold His glory, NOT our own shortcomings.
