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)

Scripture Of The Day - March 13, 2024

Posted 03-13-2024 at 10:30 AM by Albert Finch


"Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen." - Hebrews 11:1

If we will only live in the Spirit and the unction of the Spirit, there will be no lack. There is only lack where faith is not "substance". If we will obey the Lord there is nothing He will not give us since He has given us Jesus -- because He has given us Jesus He has given us all things.

Our hearts ought to always burn. There is a place where we can live in the unction and the clothing of the Spirit, where our words will be clothed with power.

".....be not drunk with wine...but be filled with the Spirit." - Ephesians 5:18


We have power to loose, and power to bind in the Spirit. If we breathe His thoughts into our thoughts, and live in the unction of the Holy Spirit as He lived moving in The Father's purpose for His life, then there will be evidences that we are in Him; and His works we will do -- but only in the Spirit.

There is no limit as to what we may become if we dwell and live in the Spirit. In the Spirit of prayer, we are taken from earth right away into heaven -- and it is only in the Spirit that the love of God is shed abroad in us.

As we speak in the Spirit, the fire which burned in the hearts of the two men on their way to Emmaus when Jesus walked with them, is burning in our heart. It is sure to come to pass when we walk with Him, our hearts will burn; it is the same power of the Spirit.

God is bringing us to a place where we know the Spirit of the Lord is upon us.

AFFIRMATION:
The Spirit of the Lord is upon me. - (Luke 4:18)
