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)

Advancing My Faith

Posted 12-31-2023 at 03:13 PM by Albert Finch


Romans 10:17 - "So then faith cometh by hearing and hearing, by the word of God."

Observation:

IF I WANT TO KEEP ADVANCING MY FAITH, I HAVE TO BE PLANTED.

I PLANT MYSELF IN THE WORD (THROUGH AFFIRMATION, MEDITATION, AND SEEING MYSELF IN THE WORD) AND IN A PLACE WHERE THE WORD IS PREVALENT AND THE PEOPLE AROUND ME ARE CONTINUALLY SPEAKING AND LIVING IT.

2 Corinthians 3:18 - "But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord."

Affirmation:

I CONFESS THAT BY GOD'S GRACE, I AM MAKING MY PRESENT SITUATION MORE AND MORE GLORIOUS! I ALLOW GOD TO TRANSFORM ME IN 2024.

BECAUSE THE HOLY SPIRIT SEES MY WILLINGNESS TO GO THROUGH THE NECESSARY TRANSFORMATION PROCESS, HE IS PREPARING TO MOVE ME UPWARD INTO A MORE GLORIOUS PHASE IN MY LIFE THROUGH MY CHRIST CALLING I AM GOING FROM GLORY TO GLORY!

Song of Solomon 2:10 - Behold, my beloved speaks to me and says, "Rise up, my love, my dove, my fair one, and come."

GOD TURNS YOU WITHIN, TOWARD HIM, AND PREPARES YOU FOR UNION WITH HIM THROUGH HIS HOLY EMBRACE. THE BELOVED (JESUS) SPEAKS TO YOU AND INVITES YOU TO COME QUICKLY OUT OF YOURSELF. HE NO LONGER ASKS YOU TO REST, BUT COMMANDS YOU TO RISE UP. " I HAVE LED YOU DEEPLY WITHIN TO FIND ME; NOW I COME OUT AND ASK YOU TO FOLLOW ME OUT OF YOURSELF."

THIS IS A CALL TO DEPART FROM YOUR SELF-NATURE. YOU MUST LOSE POSSESSION OF YOURSELF, BY HELPING OTHERS WITH THEIR SPIRITUAL NEEDS AND CHRIST IDENTITY, IN ORDER TO BE POSSESSED BY GOD ALONE.
