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)

Spiritual Goals In The Realm Of God's Spirit

Posted 12-27-2023 at 09:33 PM by Albert Finch

“Therefore, be careful how you walk, not as unwise men but as wise, making the most of your time, because the days are evil.” – Ephesians 5:15,16

The Holy Spirit desires you to live daily in the fullness of the Lord so that Jesus will receive glory and honor through His great power working in and through you. Jesus said to the Father, “As You sent Me, Father, send them!” (John 20:21). God will empower you, just as He did Jesus, to walk out the fullness of your Christ calling with that same limitless anointing of the Holy Spirit! (John 3:34). This fullness is available to every believer, for we have inherited the blessing and privilege to know the mysteries, secrets, and thoughts of God (Romans 8:16).

Encounter the Holy Spirit in a deep and profound way!

◊ Learn how to awaken every day in a fresh anointing, and live as an overcomer.

◊ Learn about your New Covenant Christ identity through affirming and meditating on the scriptures that have to do with your inheritance in Christ.

◊ Learn about the Right Standing With God that Jesus purchased for you.

◊ Learn how to “Walk In The Spirit.”

◊ Ask, knock, and seek until you come to understand and implement God’s purpose for your life (your calling in Christ).

◊ Learn how to move and flow in the power and anointing of the Holy Spirit!

◊ Learn how to live purposefully, always moving in the Spirit, with vision and goals.

◊ Walk out your Christ calling and ascend to new levels with Him.

◊ Enter into a deeper level of pressing into Him.

◊ Learn to commune in God’s presence at a level where you are receiving continual revelation for Kingdom advancement.

◊ Partake of the mysteries of the Kingdom.

◊ Learn to live with a conscious degree of expectation when it comes to having faith for God’s promises to come to pass.

◊ Learn how to demonstrate the Spirit of the Lord through your life not in word only, but in a demonstration of the Spirit that will cause people to declare that surely God is with you.

◊ Learn how to live from glory to glory as you are carrying out your calling in Christ.

◊ Learn the importance of bearing fruit that remains as you gain ground in God’s ever-advancing Kingdom.
