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)

"For [even the whole] creation (all nature) waits expectantly and longs earnestly for God's sons to be made known [waits for the revealing, the disclosing of their sonship]." (Romans 8:19)

Focus on the change; discern the atmosphere – where once the spirit of intimidation was able to intimidate you, but now you respond as one who is firm and sure and steady -- walking in your Christ identity -- knowing that God is always good and there are no impossibilities.

The question is not, 'Are you ready?' but rather you ARE READY, and here you go! Where are you going? You replace your past with revelation of new frontiers to conquer, and you are in ALL things working together for moving His Kingdom forward and bearing fruit that remains.

You lean into your Christ calling with deep courage, ready to go all the way with God in what He is calling you to do.
