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)

Apprehending The Average Christian Life

Posted 01-01-2024 at 10:42 PM by Albert Finch


Romans 12:2 - "Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing, and perfect will."

You immerse yourself into the ascended life -- living from heaven dwelling in that sense of His presence and living from there.

You embrace the "Christ in You" by affirming and meditating on those scriptures that give understanding of your true Christ identity.

You "approve the will of God" by asking knocking and seeking until you understand and implement His purpose for your life. Much of the favor of God that you will be experiencing in life will be tied to living your life pursuing that purpose.

You cultivate and believe with the highest expectation in the flow of the love of Jesus into your heart so you can bless and disciple others into their Christ identity.

Your favorite pastime and obsession becomes stoking a vision to advance His Kingdom in the earth.

You become a risk-taker and get out of the boat and walk on the water.
